Object literature: Kannon (観音) (a female equivalent of the Tibetan bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara) is a compassionate bodhisattva and one of the most popular and most frequently depicted deities in Japanese Buddhism. Kannon is the bodhisattva of compassion and mercy. She can help women become pregnant, end droughts, and is associated with vegetarianism. Many Japanese believe that anyone who cries out to Kannon with earnest, honest faith will feel her love and find salvation.
