Noted for her extreme kindness, Guanyin is an ancient Boddhisattva. In the Buddhist religion, Boddhisattvas are beings who have attained enlightenment, but renounce the goal of nirvana, a state characterized by freedom from pain, suffering, worry and the external world. Instead these benevolent Boddhisattvas minister eternally to relieve the suffering of all creatures, like archangels, passing from the remote heaven to the world of men. Indeed, this sculpted marble image of the head of the Boddhisattva Guanyin emanates an otherworldliness that bespeaks of spirited compassion and kindness. The Burmese artist who created this sculpture captures through skillful carving a beautiful image, her serene face radiating devotion and tenderness. As we behold this sensitive work of sculpted art we are at once elevated to a height of aesthetic and spiritual awareness that transcends the earthly boundaries of mortal man. - (PF.2541)
