Large Antique Fruit Wood
South Sea QuanYin
Riding on Water Dragon

Chinese, Qing Dynasty, 19th century

h.41 in.(104cm) X w.17 in.(43cm) X d.7 in.(18cm)
Condition: Good. Minor damage to dragon horn

This magnificent Bodhisattva Quan Yin riding the Water Dragon is a prototype established in Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD); and by Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) when this sculpture is carved, among popular variations of QuanYin in painting and sculpture. Respectively, there is no other prototype QuanYin image more loved by the Chinese and Japanese pilgrims.

This large and exquisitely carved fruit-wood sculpture depicts Quan Yin, the embodiment of compassion standing in tribhanger, unfolding from within the wrapped lotus leaf. She is dressed in full robes, with eyes downcast in serene expression, holding a life-giving vase in her right hand, a boon granting gesture in her left, and riding a ferocious Water Dragon frolicking in the whirlpool of the South Sea. The dragon is a symbol of creative power, the spirit of change, and of life force itself.
