Embracing Spirituality: Your KOL•Walter Ngai
The iconography of Bodhisattva Guanyin varies tremendously. The one portraying Guanyin sitting leisurely with one hand resting on the rocky seat, while another hand placing on the knee of his bent leg was created during the Tang dynasty (618-907 CE) in the 8th century. According to the Avataṃsakasūtra, this was an important iconography in China from the 11th to the 13th century, commonly seen among Buddhist statuary of the Song (960-1279 CE), Liao (916-1125) and Jin (1115-1234) dynasties.
