Guanyin, Qua Yin, Kwan Yin, Kuan Yin is the Chinese Buddhism's Goddess of mercy and compassion. She developed from the male bodhisattva, or -Buddha-to-be-, Avalokiteshvara and helps all beings on earth to attain enlightenment. Guanyin was herself originally regarded as male but increasingly gained female characteristics. Believed to bless women with children, she is sometimes depicted holding a child in her arms.

She sometimes appears as a young woman holding a fish basket, standing on clouds or riding on a dragon in front of a waterfall.The Azibaza Bazaar guaranties that the fine pieces found on these pages are genuine antiques.
