Gyuto Foundation, Too

Kuan Yin--one who perceives the sounds of the world--is said to be the goddess of compassion and mercy. Perhaps the most widely beloved Buddhist Divinity, she is said to assist with miraculous powers, all those who pray to her.

At Gyuto Foundation, the white marble statue of Kuan Yin is approximately 3/4 human size and stands in a courtyard fountain with water flowing from the ewer in her hand.

So calming to sketch Kuan Yin as the fountain gurgles, Buddhist flag pennants snap crisply in the wind, a monk chants in the monastery and a hawk circles far above in the sky.
