Kwan Yin the beneficent Goddess of Compassion, is beloved throughout Tibet, China, Korea and Japan where she is known as Avolokiteshvara, and Kannon.

This antique Chinese statue carved of substantial teak wood embodies a deep majesty. Kwan Yin arises from the Ocean of Immortality. Indeed it is Kwan Yin who fills the ocean from the nectar of her vase. Lotus flowers arise from the depths with delicately sculpted paper-thin petals. Behind Kwan Yin, the sacred mountain of Tai-Shan, one of the five holy mountains of Taoism arises. It is said that Kaun Yin and the Jade Emperor, rulers of Heaven, descended to Earth on T'ai Shan. Upon there arrival this mountain streamed forth with life in its multifarious forms. Here, T'ai Shan is covered with pine and swirls of celestial clouds. The latter symbolizes good fortune and happiness and are understood to arise from the union of the two essential principles, yin and yang.

The scene is reminiscent of traditional Chinese landscape paintings. The sumptuous flow of Kwan Yin's robes evokes the movement of the elements. Her countenance reflects peace and tranquility. Her hand is in poised in the mudra of teaching. This figure is particularly unique in the fusion of highly articulated carvings with the natural grain and flow of the wood. This statue is in excellent condition and is an exceptional find from the period. (SD)
