This carved cinnabar and silver Quan Yin pendant has a silver dragon on the back side. There is a famous depiction of Quan Yin, the Mother Goddess of the East, feeding water to two dragons, an act of love and compassion. So, it is not unusual to see her paired with these celestial creatures. This pendant has a detailed carving of Quan Yin's serene face, and there is enough age to this piece to be considered vintage as well. The silver repousse dragon and her crown are rendered in sterling silver. The hanging loop was probably added later and is made of brass. This probably started out as an alter piece.

These healing pendants are handmade by Tibetan artisans living in Northern India and Nepal. They have such a great feel to them, good vibes! Add this to your ethnographic collection or wear it encorporated into a necklace or on a cord or chain. This pendent will be delivered as is. There is a nice patina and age, but it could be cleaned up a little without damaging the piece.

Length from top of loop: 46mm (1 7/8th inches)
Width: 23.5mm
Thickness: 17mm

->The carved red jade double dragon pendant seen in the main photograph is here:
Quan Yin is known in the East as the bodhisattva of compassion. She is the celestial one who "hears the sounds of the world" and rescues people endangered or floundering in perilous situations. Strength, balance, self-mastery—all these qualities are depicted in Quan Yin's graceful bearing atop the dragon. She is unmoved by the fierceness of the creature or the swirling of the waves. She is in command of herself, her mode of travel and the forces of nature around her.
