LEGO Buddha Goddess of Mercy 觀自在菩薩 觀音菩薩
About this creation
Hi , it is my new scuplture based on Guanyin.

Avalokiteśvara (Sanskrit: अवलोकितेश्वर lit. Chinese: Guanyin) is a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. This bodhisattva is variably depicted and portrayed in different cultures as either female or male.

Guanyin is an East Asian goddess of mercy, and a bodhisattva associated with compassion as venerated by Mahayana Buddhists. The name Guanyin is short for Guanshiyin, which means "Observing the Sounds (or Cries) of the World". She is also sometimes referred to as Guanyin Pusa (觀音菩薩). Some Buddhists believe that when one of their adherents departs from this world, they are placed by Guanyin in the heart of a lotus, and then sent to the western pure land of Sukhāvatī.

It is generally accepted among East Asian adherents that Guanyin originated as the Sanskrit Avalokiteśvara (अवलोकितेश्वर). Commonly known in English as the Mercy Goddess or Goddess of Mercy,[4] Guanyin is also revered by Chinese Taoists as an immortal. In Chinese folk religion there are mythical accounts about Guanyin's origins that are not associated to the Avalokiteśvara described in Buddhist sutras.

I knew instantly what this was! I have even read in one book where it is thought that the female representation occured in an area where many trade caravans passed thru and it was suggested that there may have been a christian influence? A lovely representation in brick! :)
