“The Dharma-body of Kuan-Yin

Is neither male nor female.

Even the body is not a body,

What attributes can there be?....

Let it be known unto all Buddhists:

Do not cling to form.

The Bodhisattva is you:

Not the picture or the image.”

Kuan-Yin, the Chinese female version of the male Bodhisattva Avalokiteshwara, embodies the Buddhist vision of Bodhisattvas as enlightened individuals sacrificing for the betterment of the entire human race. Kuan-Yin also underlines the mutability of a religious idea, whose power is beyond the differences in gender and regions. Compassion, benevolence and the will to guard are virtues associated with the figure of a mother, from the beginning of culture, a sensibility that led to the transformation of Avalokiteshwara to Kuan-Yin, in the practices of Chinese Buddhism.

Delicately carved, this wooden Kuan-Yin statue is a visualization of the Bodhisattva, seated under a curved tree trunk- probably a willow tree. In this form, Kuan-Yin is shown with a stem of the willow tree in her hand, as seen in this statute. The branch is believed to drive away sickness and is a part of the forty-two insignias of Kuan-Yin. In her right hand, the Bodhisattva holds a rosary.

The divinely tranquil countenance of Kuan-Yin reminds us of the various images of Avalokiteshwara- compassion springing from their expressions. The carvings made for the robes of Kuan-Yin gracefully mingle with the patterns of the willow tree trunk, bringing a sophisticated artistic quality to the wood icon. Kind-hearted and motherly in appearance, this wooden representation of Kuan-Yin is created keeping in mind the rules of Feng-shui, to bring her reassuring presence to your space.
