This large and beautifully carved pendant depicts the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Avalokiteshvra. The outstretched arms symbolize the ever available care of the Buddha. With this goddess comes a closeness to those who are in dire need, more so than all other Buddhist deities. A highly detailed carving in ivory with a bamboo designed frame in vermeil. Large scale makes a great fashion statement on a long chain (not included). A perfect gift for someone who's heart knows no boundaries. Pendant measures approximately 3" long x 1 3/4" wide.
