Buddha as a Girl

According to one legend, Kwan Yin, who is often referred to as the female Buddha, was a beautiful Indian princess who forsook marriage and the good life to live in a convent in order to become a truly enlightened human being, or bodhisattva. This ceramic head represents India by way of Italy, c. 1960's. Groovy Goddess!
