Vovinam Buddhist Temple Sculpture of Guan Yin

There is a huge well-known statue of Guan Yin at a Buddhist temple nearby. It is by some famous sculptor, but I don't recall her name.

Il y a une très belle lumière douce sur cette statue et il y a une certaine quiétude qui ce dégage. Vote

Carol, Thanks so much! I've always wondered who she is and couldn't read any of the info there. Really interesting!

Stunning shot. Here is some info & a link about the statue.

It's Guan Yin, sometimes pronounced Kwan Yin.
Sort of the Buddhist equivalent of Mary.
She used to be a guy before she was introduced into China interestingly.
(Still is in Tibet). In fact there are some famous images where she is a
woman in every respect except she has a little goatee and moustache.
