South Sea KwanYin
Riding Golden Over Dragon

Gilt Wood with Polychrome
Chinese, late Qing Dynasty 1875-1911

h.27.2 in. X w.14.6 in. X d.8.7 in , 8 kgs

This large carving of Bodhisattva KwanYin riding the Dragon is a prototype established in Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD); and by Qing Dynasty (1875-1911) when this sculpture is carved, among popular variations of KwanYin in painting and sculpture, there is no other KwanYin image more loved by the Chinese and Japanese pilgrims.

This exquisitely carved and gilt camphor wood sculpture depicts KwanYin, the embodiment of compassion, standing in tribhanger on a ferocious dragon frolicking in the whirlpool of the South Sea. She is dressed in full robes, with eyes down-cast in serene expression, holding a life-giving vase in her right hand, a boon granting gesture in her left, and riding a Chinese dragon, which is the symbol of creative power, the spirit of change, and of life force itself.
