A very feminine Quan Yin carved from Hibiscus wood. 35cm/13 inches.
Quan Yin is the female form of the Buddha of Compassion, Avalokitesvara. Compassion means 'to feel with another', to be able to empathize and understand, even if we don't agree. It is said 'Quan Yin hears the cries of the world'. Her calm strength and gentle energy can inspire us to listen deeply, to hear our own truth and that of our world and then to act with kindness in our hearts.
