A symbol of compassion and wisdom, Guanyin is a bodhisattva venerated by Buddhists and Taoists alike. This exquisite porcelain sculpture from the early 20th century depicts the serene-faced goddess holding lotus plants, symbols of purity and divinity, in her characteristic flowing white robes. Crafted with keen attention to detail and a sense of ethereal lightness, the figure is made of a clay known as blanc de chine. The clay’s low iron content allows it to keep its white color after firing, here applied with a white glaze to further enhance its pristine appearance.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
