Gilt bronze statuette of Guanyin. Tall graceful figure standing holding lotus bud in hands. Over the forehead at the base of the high crown headdress is a tiny figure of the Amida Buddha. When acquired, the statue was covered with a thick emerald green patina except for the hands, face and throat which retained their smooth gilding; there were traces of gold on the garments. The statue has since been cleaned. Found in a river near the Aipao village which was the ancient seat of the Jianning Monastery; the village is a suburb of Liaoyang, south of Shenyang in Liaoning Province.
