Kwan Im is the Goddess of Fortune; she is beautiful and ethereal, bringing happiness and prosperity to those who worship her. In this statuette she is wrapped in a cloak of flowers caressed by a gentle breeze. Gung Gus carves her image by hand of noble crocodile wood and brings her to life with a palette of acrylic paints.
Gung Gus has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $350 and the most recent for $1250. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood and paints for the production of his new designs.
