    Is it meant to be a contradiction? The upward lighting conveys more a feeling of ghastly dread instead. Not the peace, serenity associated with mercy.

    Maybe what he meant was "Have mercy on me.." =x

    Always interesting to see different perspective/views from one shot....

    Anyhow, it's a statue of the Goddess of Mercy, hence the title...

    Cheers.

    It is indeed immediately recognizable as Guanyin, but the lighting puts the Bodhisattva in a different light.(pun intended)

    This would have really worked well if you have taken a shot of one of the other traditional chinese guardian idols.....u know the sort with bulging eyes and weapons in hand.
