Quan Yin on Cresent Moon-Brown Bronze Color L. 8.5"
Yin has been depicted in many forms, some inspired by miracles attributed to
her. A Tang Dynasty depiction of Quan Yin sitting in the Royal Ease pose,
backed by a crescent moon, was made popular from a folk legend where she saved
an entire village from disaster (Named the Water & Moon Quan Yin). In
Buddhist art, Quan Yin is sometimes shown with eleven heads and one thousand
hands (Thousand-Armed Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva), a symbol of her aspiration
to reach out to any being in any form to help them.
