An Ancient Chinese Tang Dynasty marble statuette of Guanyin, the Chinese translation of the bodhisattva known as Avalokiteśvara. The figure appears seated with one leg crossed over the other, her left hand over her ankle. The other arm is bent, the hand now sadly missing. Facial features appear softly modelled, with a calm face and slightly smiling lips.
Date: Circa 618-906 AD
