This is a gorgeous Kuan Yin natural Jade Carving from China with nice detail. The last picture shows the back of the carving. The plum shape is a good luck symbol.
I believe the Jade is Nephrite Jade. I had done some studying of the different kinds of Jade and Nephrite is primarily the kind of Jade found in China.
I thought it was very clever to carve the Deity inside the stone this gives it almost on could say a little shrine or house as well as protecting it from nicks or damage. Jade is quite tough and difficly to break or scratch so this should always be easy to transport and move avoiding damage. A wonderful carving.
No chips or damage
