Description

A soapstone figure of guanyin and a child.

The standing bodhisattva is shown holding a child with both hands.

She is dressed in long, loose robes that are incised with foliate decoration and fall in folds around the body.

Her face is carved with downcast eyes under upswept hair tied in a high chignon and partially covered by a long cowl.

The stone is of pale celadon color with scattered reddish-brown inclusions.

The figure stands on a matching soapstone base of mottled ochre color and carved with a pattern of swirling clouds and a deeply recessed base.

The back of the statue bears an incised two-character inscription, possibly reading Yu Qiong.
