Quan Yin Bust, Hand Carved In Jade, Chinese.

 

In China, Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva is represented in female form and is known as Kuan Yin. Probably because of Kuan Yin's great compassion, a quality which is traditionally considered feminine, most of the bodhisattva's statues in China since the Tang Dynasty (A.D. 618 - 907) have appeared as female figures. In India, however, the bodhisattva is generally represented as a male figure.

Translated into Chinese, the name is "Kuan Shih Yin" or Quan Yin.
