goddess of mercy rock 观音石

From this angle, the rock does look interesting, almost like a human figure, however from another, this is just a mass of rocks.
...
The Chinese believe this rock resembles the Goddess of Mercy. There is a shrine below this huge rock. There is a tiny path that leads to this rock and this is on a high altitude. (Unfortunately I could not take a picture of the shrine below as I ran out of battery power to my camera.)
...
The Chinese believe that the fishermen were well protected.
