Very cool Andy. What is the mythological entity they are portraying? I can recall the many-armed Goddess icon but cannot place the name of the entity and the only one I an think of is Vishnu, which may have been an influence but is not exactly the same thing.

The last comment sez it's based on Chinese Buddhism, I think.

I know I've seen actual ancient sculptures with that character (many armed woman). Not sure though if this Guan Yin thing is it or not.

Derived from the ancient Hindu Vedic deities. Dating back thousands BC.

Many of which had multiple arms, along with other notable difference.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindu_deities


Hindu deities such as:

Vishnu

Brahma
Image


Lakshmi
Image

Durga
Image

Kali

..and various other mythical entities.

Being so old, it had spread through parts of Asia and changed over the millennia.

Plus their many old carvings on buildings, statues, etc are quickly recognizable.

Hindu temple stuff in India:

Like a hawk . . . nothing gets past you! :P

So now my question is: why haven't conspiracy loons used the prevalence of many-armed mythological humanoid figures in ancient Asian spiritual beliefs as a sign that humanity was visited in the past by a race of benevolent insectoids?

On a side note, Chinese Buddhism.

It was imported from India:
Quote:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journey_to_the_West
Journey to the West is a Chinese novel published in the 16th century during the Ming dynasty and attributed to Wu Cheng'en. It is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. In English-speaking countries, Monkey, Arthur Waley's popular abridged translation is most commonly read.

The novel is an extended account of the legendary pilgrimage of the Tang dynasty Buddhist monk Xuanzang who traveled to the "Western Regions", that is, Central Asia and India, to obtain Buddhist sacred texts (sūtras) and returned after many trials and much suffering. It retains the broad outline of Xuanzang's own account, Great Tang Records on the Western Regions, but the Ming dynasty novel adds elements from folk tales and the author's invention, that is, that Gautama Buddha gave this task to the monk and provided him with three protectors who agree to help him as an atonement for their sins. These disciples are Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie and Sha Wujing, together with a dragon prince who acts as Xuanzang's steed, a white horse.

Journey to the West has strong roots in Chinese folk religion, Chinese mythology, Taoist and Buddhist philosophy, and the pantheon of Taoist immortals and Buddhist bodhisattvas are still reflective of some Chinese religious attitudes today. Enduringly popular, the tale is at once a comic adventure story, a humorous satire of Chinese bureaucracy, a spring of spiritual insight, and an extended allegory in which the group of pilgrims journeys towards enlightenment by the power and virtue of cooperation.
Very popular in China with many adaptions in all art form. Including movies, and youtube summaries.
