Buddha as a Girl

Here's a bit of enlightenment on one of our favorite forms...Her name is Kwan Yin and she is often referred to as the female Buddha. Created by Bitossi in the 60s, we are inclined to believe she was made almost exclusively for the famed Copenhagen department store called Illums Bolighus, as it has on occasion had the store label still attached and is found for auction primarily in Scandinavia. It seems that few if any were sold even in Italy (where it was made) and we rarely acquire them stateside.
