Porcelain Kwan Yin With 1 Dragon
Porcelain Kwan Yin Drip Fountain
In China, Kwan Yin is the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion and is also the Protectress of Children. Some also look to her, as a goddess of fertility.
Some know her as Kuan Shih Yen, or Quan Shi Yin, meaning "One who hears the cries of the world, and comes". It is said, that all one must do is speak her name, and she is present to assist.
Kwan Yin is the protectress of women, sailors, merchants, craftsmen, children, and those under criminal prosecution. She is also often called upon by those desiring children or to guard the souls of the newborn.
Often, Kwan Yin is shown pouring a stream of healing water, the "Water of Life," from a small vase. With this water devotees and all living things are blessed with physical and spiritual peace.
Kwan Yin may hold a sheaf of ripe rice or a bowl of rice seed as a metaphor for fertility and sustenance.
The dragon, an ancient symbol for high spirituality, wisdom, strength, and divine powers of transformation, is a common motif found in combination with the Goddess of Mercy.
Want a feel a little Kwan Yin, in your life? Find a little space or corner in your home or room, and clear it of all items that do not feed your soul, when you look upon them. As has been said "less is more".
It is said to have a Kwan Yin picture or figurine in your house brings good luck and protection to the household and family. When placed in a room, Kwan Yin cleanses the home of negative influences, including family arguments, martial problems and illness.

~ Kwan Yin Figurine Drip Fountain
In China, Kwan Yin is the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion and is also the Protectress of Children.
Here, Kwan Yin is represented as standing on a crest of waves, from which rises a Dragon, who drinks from her vase that holds the nectar of her compassion. The Dragon symbolizes the creative strength of Heaven (Yang) and Kuan Yin represents the Earth (Yin).
Kwan Yin may be holding a Lotus branch, or there may be Lotus blossoms in the water surrounding the dragon. When shown arising from water, the Lotus symbolizes the physical existence firmly established against the sea of possibility. Lotuses also represent purity and divine birth.
