Kun Iam Statue

In Macau,

Is a 20m-high bronze figure, emerging Virgin Mary–like from a 7m-high lotus in the outer harbor of Macau, which is probably the only statue in the world of the goddess of mercy that is not facing the sea. The Kun Iam Ecumenical Centre is an information center on Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.


Other Pictures:


They say that she is a mixture of "Mother Mary" (Catholics) and "Guang Yin" (Buddhist)

She looks like a gentle guide in the sea when we visited her in Macau.
