Description

The Collection: Buddha Sculptures & Figurines  |  Light Exists Because of Love
Design Concept:
Water-moon Guanyin, one of the thirty-three manifestations of the bodhisattva Guanyin (Avalokitesvara), exudes a sense of perfect peace and inner freedom. Adorned with a necklace of precious stones, Guanyin wears a crown holding an image of the buddha Amitabha, of whom she is an emanation, serving as a constant reminder of her mission in the world. Sitting leisurely on a wave-live rock, her right arm rests on her right knee, as is customary for this traditional image. Her stole gracefully flows down her right arm and merges with the base. In the Buddhist scriptures the moon reflected in the water is used to represent the insubstantiality of what appears to be substantial, indicating that everything in the world is formed by the combination of causes and conditions—the doctrine of emptiness. Having thoroughly realized the true nature of reality, Guanyin uses her boundless wisdom and compassion to bring all sentient beings to the same realization, so as to let go of all attachment and enjoy perfect peace. The gently flowing contours of the glossy base invoke the image of a placid body of water. The gradually thinner layers of glass forming the concave section of the base reflect light of various qualities, producing a captivating aesthetic effect. An ingenious combination of design and workmanship, this unique three-dimensional Water-moon Guanyin takes glass sculpture to new heights.
水月观音,是生命自在的嚮往,观音菩萨三十三法相之一。此佛像作品中,菩萨身佩璎珞,髪髻高束,头饰上戴有着小尊的阿弥陀佛,这也是以代表观音菩萨不忘师恩,念念提醒自己来娑婆世界的目的。菩萨盘坐于水波纹的岩石上,右腿支起,右臂放在右膝上,一般而言,这是形容水月观音时,比较常见的坐姿。水月在佛经中有深远的寓意,水中之月,非月的实体,代表有影无实,意指世间万物都是由因缘和合而成,本质皆属虚空,菩萨以觉者之身,且充满着智慧和慈爱之心,希望世间有情众生也都能了解宇宙万物的本质,放下执着,以自在之心,如意安然。底座的几何椭圆形,圆润光滑,线条流畅,如平静水面。而透过凹圆的切割,逐层变薄的弧度,在不同角度映衬不同的光,展现迷离而清透的效果,是令人沉醉的现代雕塑美学。琉璃材质的运用,使得水月观音中“水”的意象,不再是一个平面,由于光线和设计的巧妙结合,得以360°全方位的呈现,是水月观音造像的突破。
Heart of Guanyin
With a free heart,Guanyin sits in contentmentIn contemplation,Casting a light across the mire.A void filled by light, mirrored by the water and moon.Observe a world that must be endured,Consciousness within this sentient world.
