Each statue is made using high pressure die casting, followed by finish work done by a skilled craftsman. It is made to look like an antique, and will add a touch of classic Japanese iconography for any Buddhist or anyone interested in Asian art.
The statue is of Kannon, Goddess of Mercy, an extremely popular Bodhisattva in traditional Japanese Buddhism because of her efficacy at answering prayers, the many miracles attributed to her, and the many temples named after her.
