Kwan Yin standing on clouds, suspended just above a bamboo grove. A metaphoric descent from the moon to her believers, she holds in her hands tools of compassion; a willow branch to heal illness and a jar of water to purify the defiled. Layered and dense, deep folds of carved wood twist around and through the figure. In the background a moon is partially obscured by passing clouds while down below, on Earth, bamboo rises from the moss and stone. The attractive rose colored wood gives off a slight gleam, the color of a pair of soft brown eyes looking out. Kwan Yin is the goddess of compassion, and takes thirty-three different forms. A beautiful piece in excellent condition.

Quan Yin does not come hither;
I do not go thither.
The water is in the basin;
The moon is in the heavens.
When the water is clear,
The moon appears.
When the mirror is bright, the image emerges.

-Su Tung-Po, the 11th Century Chinese poet-
