White Porcelain Willow Branch Guanyin Bodhisattva Statue
As for the origin of Yangliu Guanyin, it is generally believed that Yangliu Guanyin originated in the Western Regions. According to Tang Yijing's "Nanhai Jigui Neifa Biography," the custom in the Western Regions is to pick one's teeth with thin strips of poplar twigs every day, chew the twigs to clean one's teeth, and use poplar twigs to clean one's teeth. Brush your teeth so that you can get rid of disasters and diseases, which is called tooth wood. There is such an etiquette in the local area to present tooth wood and clean water to distinguished guests to show cleanliness, to wish people good health, and to beg. In addition, people in ancient India believed that willow branches have strong vitality, and they used willow branches as a metaphor for the prosperity and development of Buddhism; it will last forever; and the Sanskrit of the net bottle is late, and it often stores water and uses it to clean hands, which also means cleanliness; so Buddhas and Bodhisattvas are also invited to use poplar branches and clean water. Slowly, Yangzhi and Jingshui developed and gradually became the magic weapon in the hands of Guanyin Bodhisattva.
Avoid chemicals, and the porcelain can be cleaned with a damp soft cloth when dusty or every two weeks to maintain its brightness.
