by lethe2020 Stunning but needs room!
We have several Guan Yin/Kwan Yin statues and paintings, but this is by far the most dramatic and stunning. Definitely deserves a showcase siting for display.
Do pay attention to the dimensions, especially height. Due to the beautifully curved crescent moon upon which the Guan Yin sits, this is VERY tall so it really needs about 26" in display height to show at its best.
Although 'wood finished' it is a touch plastic-y in appearance close up. But the gracefulness of the pose and the elegant overall design more than compensate for the slight negative of its surface finish. The color is a warm golden tan and very pleasing with almost any decor colors.
The base is nicely weighted so no fears it will fall over. Construction could be a little "tighter" but this is not something that people are going to handle so I think it will be fine. We have ordered a dramatic silk orchid plant to sit beside this; they should be beautiful together!

I was a bit skeptical when ordering, wondering what the quality would actually be like .It is a quality piece, I would say. And it was reasonably priced.The immense care and attention to detail makes this a great value. If you're looking for a elegant piece this would be perfect !!

I am an interior designer. My client wanted an asian sculpture right outside her door in a covered space. I put this in a terra cotta 36 in bird bath /planter. Filled it with blue/green glass.and a ropelight/solar. totally stunning. Gave it a clear coat of polyurethene for the weather.

A pretty fine piece. It could look more like wood however, but it does look fine enough. It is an impressive piece and always draws attention to itself. Very serene!

It is not always easy to determine from a catalog or on line that a product will be exactly what it appears to look like. In my home and at work I have many pieces of asian statues, pictures, etc. that I have collected along the way either through my journies throughout Asia or through purchases here at home. When the statue of Guan Yin arrived I was most pleased with the beauty and feeling of compassion and peace that it evokes. As it sits in my home it stands out as a focal point and everyone who comes to my home enquires about the statue, the meaning of it, the beauty of it and its craftsmanship. I have to admit that I have bought some other pieces from Toscano before but they have always been gifts. I am happy to have purchased Guan Yin for myself.
