Item Description

 

Enjoy Kwan Yin in statue form. Readers of the Shambhala Sun and visitors to our gallery will be familiar with the print version of this Royal Ease Kwan Yin based on the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art original but Neko-Chan is also offering this bronze reproduction

Kwan Yin (Guanyin) is immensely popular among Chinese Buddhists, especially those from devotional schools. She is generally seen as a source of unconditional love and more importantly as a savior. In her bodhisattva vows, Guan Yin promises to answer the cries and pleas of all beings and to liberate all beings from their own karmic woes.  

Neko-Chan "search(es) the planet to find and bring you the unusual, tools and gifts that enrich the spirit." Its catalog is brimming with everything from  the practical - incense, malas and books - to the unusual - pottery, textiles and cats! "A package from Neko-Chan should bring a smile to your face."

The company "will not knowingly deal in any items which are produced by 'sweatshops', prison labor, slave labor, child labor...and (has) a policy of across-the-board boycotting of products from China to protest the Chinese take-over of Tibet." They go on to say that "There are many struggling artisans and craftpersons in China who deserve a break" and that they continue to look for and support them.
