Guan-Yin Chinese Silk Embroidery Painting

Today is the 6th of August, the 19 of the sixth lunar month 2012. The 19th day of the 6th Chinese month comemorates when Kwan Yin became a Buddha.

Kwan Yin, or Guan Yin, also widely known as Kuan Shih Yin, is revered by millions of Chinese around the world. She is the most popular among the Chinese pantheon of deities and is the female manifestation of the Buddha of Compassion.

Kwan-yin ("Goddess of Mercy") was translated from "Avalokites' Vara" in Sanskrit. As one of the four major Bodhisattvas in Buddhism, she is highly valued by Buddhists in China. With dignified and kind facial appearance, Kwan-yin, who holds a clean bottle with a twig of willow in her hand, is regarded to have infinite wisdom and theurgy. She was said to be infinitely merciful and apt at rescuing the human world from disasters as well as hearing and viewing tribulations in it. Therefore, she was called "Goddess of Mercy".

The following Kuan Yin portrait paintings are 100% hand embroidered with silk threads on silk by embroidery artists in Suzhou China.
