Got a couple more stone carvings this weekend. This one is Quan Yin the goddess of compassion and mercy. She is the feminine Buddha. The stone is a lapis lazuli stone; a relatively rare semi-precious stone. The carving is just over 9 inches tall. She has one flaw in the center of her back where a guy at the auction took out his pocket knife and chipped the sculpture to see if it was real stone or glass. Guessing he was looking for a glass one because he never did bid on the item?
