This lovely work of art features not one but two Queens to bring you sublime blessings from two of the most exalted figures in Feng Shui – Kuan Yin, Queen of Heaven, and the Phoenix, Queen of Birds. Sculpted from heavy brass and plated in glorious gold, Kuan Yin is seated on a golden phoenix in a graceful yet alert posture. With their right leg gently outstretched, she seems ever ready to fly into action at the slightest request, aided by her trusted winged companion. Crafted in intricate detail, the sculpture pays tribute to the elegance and beauty of Kuan Yin with her flowing robe and jeweled accessories whilst the magnificent plumage of the phoenix is showcased in breathtaking details. The Golden Kuan Yin Riding on Phoenix is indeed a feast for the eye. Commonly known to the Chinese as Kuan Yin as the Goddess of Mercy (or Kwan Yin, Quan Yin, Guan Yin), she is the most popular of the deity on Chinese altars, trusted and loved by all Chinese people. Her name is short for Kuan Shi Yin. Kuan means to observe, watch, or monitor; Shi means the world; Yin means sounds, specifically sounds of those who suffer. Thus, Kuan Yin is a compassionate being who watches for, and responds to, the people in the world who cry out for help. Many Buddhist scriptures state that one can invoke Kuan Yin’s assistance by simply calling out her name; people feel that this bodhisattva is very approachable. “One Who Hears the Cries of the World”, she hears those who call upon her and helps them even to lead them to the peace and happiness of the Western Heaven. Kuan Yin is a savior with boundless compassion, a comforter of the sick, lost, senile, frightened, and unfortunate. The Phoenix, queen of all the winged creatures and the ultimate symbol of feminine power which has risen out of the ash symbolizes resurrection, infinity, and rebirth. One of the four celestial animals, represents opportunities and the power of hope, one of the greatest driving forces of humanity. This legendary firebird brings material comfort and good fortune to those who have a run of bad luck gives them the strength to continue, to survive difficult times even though there seems to be no hope. It brings opportunity luck in your work and career and lets you see there’s light at the end of the tunnel when you are at your lowest low. Invite the Golden Kuan Yin Riding on Phoenix into your home and place her in a high and respectful place. Besides being a magnificent showpiece, she will bring you comfort & blessings, clear obstacles, and make your wishes come true, especially your path to wisdom and enlightenment.
