Ancient, hand wrought standing Lotus Goddess of Mercy (觀音). Faint traces of paints and gilt remaining. Very good wood, presumably Sandalwood due to it's light weight. The wood lines are also very visible in the base in throughout the statue, another sign of excellent wood used. Loss and wear commensurate with great age including right hand lost to time and extreme weathering of statue. Beautiful time honed patina. Minor ancient time age cracks and wear/chip.
