GuanYin is an abbreviated form of Guanshiyin which means "The One Who Perceives the Sounds of the World". The one who observes, who captures the sounds, the prayers, the tears and more generally all the sufferings of the world.

GuanYin is thus the goddess of Compassion and Mercy.

GuanYin is the Chinese form of the Buddhist deity Avalokitesvara, one of the most revered bodhisattvas. In China, GuanYin is represented as a woman, unlike India. In the majority of the representations, you will find her dressed in a long white dress, standing on a lotus leaf or sitting in meditation.

Chinese artisans are reputed for the precision and extreme detailing they put into woodcarving. They favor the boxwood to create amazing artworks.

Buxus is a genus of about 70 species, generally small trees or bushes, common names include box or boxwood. Owing to its fine grain it is sought for fine wood carving, although  limited by the small sizes available. It is also resistant to splitting and chipping.
