Seen from the visuals, it is clear that Mystic Flour was inspired by the figure of the goddess Kwan Im. And even Gautama Buddha himself. 

The skin color and white clothes he wears, also known as Hanfu, symbolize the purity and kindness of the Buddha's loving and merciful heart. Which comes at a time of trouble and sorrow for mankind.

Talking about the origins of the goddess Kwan Im, the appearance of this goddess was first introduced in China in the first century BC at the same time as Buddhism. 

Goddess Kwan Im was then introduced to other countries such as Japan and Korea in the 7th century BC after being introduced during the Tang Dynasty. Likewise in Tibet, they know him by the name Chenrezig.

Then the figure of the goddess Kwan Im also became increasingly famous after she was visualized as a woman starting during the Yuan Dynasty which lasted from 1206 to 1368, then followed by the Ming Dynasty which took place in the 15th century.

There are many versions of the name of the goddess Kwan Im. And the most famous is Guan Yin or Kwan Im. Which is the result of the translation of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva into compassionate Chinese. Like a depiction of the figure of Gautama Buddha. 

The full name of the goddess Kwan Im is Kwan She Im Pho Sat, which, if translated back into Sanskrit, then becomes Avalokitesvara.
