The Buddhist deity of compassion, mercy, and looking cool as a cucumber

I’ve been a big fan of Dicken Liu‘s LEGO builds for a while now (find out why here), and my favourite type of build is when he dips into the traditions and mythology of Eastern Asia. The latest addition to that collection is this Buddha statue.  Named Guanyin of the Southern Seas, the restrained colours with the eye-catching gold look absolutely gorgeous here. Liu’s masterful posing also makes him incredibly suave. In fact, the builder also tells us that this pose has it’s very own name: Maharajalila – “royal ease”. The name is almost as smooth as the pose itself!
