Description

4b42 kuan yin description The iconography of Kuan Yin depicts her in many forms, each one revealing a unique aspect of her merciful presence.  In this statue she is portrayed standing on a fish.  She wears a beautiful flowing robe and ornaments symbolic of her virtues.  In her left hand she holds a vase of amrita, the dew of compassion, which can remove suffering and purify our tainted bodies, speech and mind.  Her right hand is in the gesture of giving refuge.  Her head is bent slightly forward as if looking, listening for any cry for help.

This beautiful wood Kuan Yin is carved from the trunk of a raintree.  Only master artisans are experienced enough to carve full tree carvings.  The artist must have a very keen eye in order to see the contour and shape of the tree and bring life to it.

Kuan Yin is beautifully showcased!  Her face has a calming look of serenity and peace.  The whole sculpture flows to the natural lines within the tree.

It took the artist 8 1/2 months to carve this stunning work of art.

This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the artists of Bali, Indonesia.

About The God

Kwan Yin (also spelled Kuan Yin, Quan Yin or Guan Yin), is known as the Goddess of Compassion, and she is one of the most popular deities in all of Asia.  Her name in Chinese roughly translates to "The One Who hears the Cries of the World".  Many believe that she is the female representation of Avalokiteshvara, the Tibetan and Nepalese God of Compassion.  As a Bodhisattva, she has chosen to put off her complete, unexcelled, perfect enlightenment for the benefit of beings everywhere, and will wait as long as there is one being who is not enlightened.
