Quan Yin Porcelain

Intended to suggest the Chinese figurines that were once carved from a single ivory tusk, this is, in reality, a rare American porcelain figure created by the Boehm company. While there were only 81 ever made, this is from the first edition from 1956 (1 of 60). Quan Yin is an enduring decorative motif, as she is considered Buddha in female form.
