Marble Quan Yin Private Collection
  

The boddhisattva Quan Yin is shown riding a snow lion, symbol of bravery and guardian of the Buddhist dharma. The bodhisattva was originally a male deity named Avalokiteshvara in India. He was worshipped in the realm of Amitabha Buddha. The Lotus Sutra lists his thirty-three transformations from male to female; which illustrates the infinity of means of salvation in his great compassion to rescue faithfuls from perils. The Buddha manjusri is believed to be his emination, often depicted in his wrathful aspect as conqueror of Yama, and taming the demon with his wisdom, he is also seen in less fearsome appearances, and can show feminine features and graces, as in this beautiful carving from the period around 1900. The sculpture is complete with all details intact and offers a glimpse of sensitive carving and sinuous beauty in the service of spiritual refinement. Sculpted fully in the round, the piece is imbued with a dignity and stability in which the finish of the stone echoes the calm and bearing of the subject.

This exquisite carving in white marble is a fine example of the divine human quality in Chinese Buddhist arts.
