A Chinese wooden charm hanging decoration inspired by the Bodhisattva Guanyin.

This decoration forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Feminine power: the divine to the demonic.

The two-part decoration is made from wood etched with a Guanyin symbol, finished with a cord and tassel.

Guanyin is the Chinese name given to the Buddhist Bodhisattva of Compassion, popularly called ‘The Goddess of Mercy’. With a name meaning ‘Perceiver of Sounds’, Guanyin is frequently depicted as a beautiful and serene woman on a lotus flower, although some images present her as male, providing connections between the Bodhisattva and the concept of gender fluidity. Guanyin’s teachings are found in the Lotus Sutra.

A lovely souvenir from the exhibition.
