QUAN YIN - GODDESS OF MERCY

In Sanskrit, her name is Padma-pani or "Born of the Lotus".
Quan Yin is one of the most universally beloved of deities in the Buddhist tradition.  She is the
embodiment of compassionate loving kindness.
As the Bodhisattva of Compassion, she hears the cries of all beings.  She is truly truly the Goddess of
Mercy.  It is said that a single heartfelt cry of suffering asking  for mercy, she will be there for you.
For those who pray to her will know and I am one of them and she has answered my prayers.

There is a sense of happiness and bliss as I created this piece of artwork of Quanshiyin Pusa. To have the creation taken in front of her figurine symbolizes my devotion and faith in Goddess of Mercy.

Materials used: Light moldering paste, FW acrylic paint, skeleton leaves, dried flowers, coarse pumice gel, levelling gel, swirls chipboard, Claudine Hellmuth semi gloss acrylic paint and the support is canvas.

"OM MANI PADMI HOM"  -  this is the mantra for Quan Yin .
