Avalokiteshvara statuary in a shop. I haven't seen other such mudras in either the Mahayana or Hinayana streams of Buddhism, except once in San Francisco's Chinatown, and since this was in a shop in the middle of Sin City, not sure how accurate it is, although there were many other accurate pieces in the shop. It's almost 8 feet tall, so it is an eye catcher that brings people in. The Venetian Casino and Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

I respect other one's faith and culture, so it's not a matter of disrespect when I say that I'm glad not to be invited to shake hands.
Perfect find, Ted, and a very good entry for the B&W challenge.

It is interesting that all except 2 pairs of hands are holding something. The ones in prayer are not, or one other pair. I wonder what the held items represent.
You got a super shot here with good lighting to show it to best advantage.
Will add to the BWC today, thank you

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

I have to "hand" it to you Ted, a perfectly suited title for this great image!! Can't make up her mind I guess. Nice one!
