Kwan Yin is presented as a beautiful image transmitting serenity and goodness. She is a symbol of mercy. On her left hand she carries healing water symbolizing the nectar of compassion and wisdom. Her right hand is performing a "mudra", spiritual sign performed with the hand fingers intended to open or close certain energy sources and be able to perform meditation or relaxation. Her neck is adorned with a sumptuous necklace referring to the rosary used by her to invoke the Buddhas for aid. The base of the piece is a lotus flower. On Kwan Yin sculptures the lotus are used as thrones and symbols of the power endowed to her.
