Exclusive to the British Museum, a jade pendant necklace inspired by the Chinese Bodhisattva Guanyin.

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

The pendant is made from natural jade which is set on a silver-plated chain, finished with a lobster clasp.

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 beautiful piece inspired by the rich history of Buddhism.
