Guan-yin is known in the East as the Bodhisattva of Compassion. She is the celestial one who “hears the sounds of the world” and rescues people endangered or floundering in perilous situations. The dragon itself represents primal forces we are in the process of taming and bring good fortune after being tamed.
This is a statue of Guan-yin riding a water dragon. Legend has it that after being shown great compassion by Guan-yin, the water dragon decided to aid Guan-yin in helping those in need. The jade bottle that Guan-yin carries is pointed downwards, signifying how Guan-yin gives everything to the world and leaves nothing for herself.
It is recommended place a statue of Guan-yin near the front door and not in front of windows, bedrooms, corners or close to toilets. This product is also suitable for placing together with a Lotus Candleholder (available here), which can be placed in front of this statue.
