Beautifully carved, with lots of detail, which is hard to fathom in such a small carving. No exaggeration, the carving is excellent. Interestingly heavy when picked up, because it is one of the two types of genuine jade. Wonderful and even green coloration. Just a beautiful little gem and art object. As you may know, Kwan Yin is the Chinese goddess of mercy and compassion. Her correct name is Kuanshih Yin, which means "she who harkens to the cries of the world." Bring her forth whenever someone maddening appears. Count to ten. Breathe deep. All better! You're one step closer to enlightenment.
