Kuan Yin, goddess of compassion. Kuan means Earth and Yin is the female life force. She is a completely enlightened Buddha who made a promise in the distant past that after reaching complete enlightenment she would always appear in female form for the benefit of all beings. By iconographic category and hierarchy she is a meditational deity and her appearance is that of a peaceful deity. Kuan Yin has strength which is embraced by softness.

Jade Buddha Statue

The historic Zen Buddhist temple of Kennin-ji in Kyoto was founded in 1202 CE, but its ceiling received dramatic modern paintings of two dragons in 2002 for its 800th anniversary. Artist Koizumi Junsaku gave the work a bold graphic quality, but the art is highly influenced by traditional Japanese aesthetics that are even older than the building.
