"The statue is so wonderful I hardly know how to express the effect of the presence in our home.
What an exquisite work of art it is! Every detail is gracious and beautiful, every line and color carrying meaning
as if they were strains of music woven together into song. I'm going to be finding new elements in the statue even
after I've been gazing at it for years....It takes my breath away..."

Quan Yin [Kuan Yin, Guanyin], is the Bodhisattva of compassion. In Japan she is known as Kannon and in Tibet as Chenrezig. Quan Yin translates to one who hears the cries of the world - the living expression of loving compassion. In her right hind she holds the jewel of three treasures. Her crown depicts the image of Amitabha Buddha. Here she sits in royal ease atop a rock etched with a verse from the Lotus Sutra.

Jizo, or Ksitigarbha, is a Bodhisattva who made a vow to not achieve Buddhahood until all the hells are empty. He is considered a protector of women, children and animals, including the unborn child.
In his left hand, Ksitigarbha holds a wish granting jewel; in his right hand, he holds a monk's staff, which is used to alert insects and small animals of his approach, so that he will not accidentally harm them.

Avalokiteshvara (Tibetan: Chenrezig) is the bodhisattva of great compassion. Having a thousand hands and thousand eyes demonstrates that he watches over and cares for infinite living beings. His eleven faces are arranged into three tiers- each of three faces, and above is the wrathful face of Vajrapani, and at the top the face of Amitabha Buddha. His two principal hands are palms-folded before his heart. The other six of his eight principal hands hold a crystal rosary, makes the gesture of generosity, and holds an eight-spoked golden wheel on his right; and his other three left hands hold an eight-petalled lotus, a golden water pot, and an undrawn bow and arrow. Extending outwards from his body are his remaining 992 arms, which form a series of six concentric circles containing 32, 144, 168, 192, 216, and 240 hands respectively. Each hand has an eye in the center of its palm- symbolizing the union of his five 'method' perfections (five fingers) with the sixth perfection of wisdom (eye).
