Kwan Yin Sitting on a Lion, Marble Mountain, Vietnam
Outside the Marble Mountain caves many large sculptures of Kwan Yin stand along the roadside, commissioned by temples or waiting for potential buyers. This fifteen-foot sculpture shows her in the royal ease posture, calmly sitting on the back of a ferocious lion, confident and at one with all of life.
