"qian shou guan yin"

on the left is the statue of "qian shou guan yin" thousand hands goddess of mercy. its about 16 inches in height and made of wood. the statue was wholely gold-plated and some parts was broken. i've decided to put on some colours to its skin and re-gold the rest of the statue. its a very tough job due to its many many hands obstructing my movements of my brush. i used about 6 days to finish this project. the owner was very glad with my job. (this is one of my favourites finishing)
