Tsa'tsas (pron. za-zas) are traditional relief images of Buddhist deities and are used in Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice. They are sacred objects because they represent the various forms of the Buddha. Looking upon a tsa'tsa is thought to purify the mind, remove obstacles and bestow merit. Tsa'tsas may also be given to those who are ill and dedicated to the deceased.
Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara, Skt.) is the bodhisattva of limitless compassion. Depicted in his four-armed aspect, he holds a wish-granting gem in his first two hands. His other two hands hold a mala and a lotus.
The Chenrezig tsa'tsa statue is handcrafted of durable resin and finished with a warm cream colored glaze that resembles antique ivory. Made in the USA.
