Elegant, circa 1925, large, beautifully modeled, serene Blanc de Chine porcelain Kwan Yin figure in flowing robes atop a lotus blossom that surmounts a coiled dragon. She cradles a traditional lotus want in her right arm and in her left is a petite vase appropriate for a fresh bloom. In Chinese Buddhism, Kwan Yin is thought of as a feminine form of Avalokitesvara (Sanskrit), the Bodhisattva of compassion, kindness and love.
NOTE: There is a hairline crack on the right side of the base. See attached photo.
