Customer Comments and Our Story
This inspiration for this Silk Artwork was a painting of the same name by an artist named Zeng Hao. Zeng Hao is internationally renown as a gifted and innovative artist. His talent for combining traditional Chinese culture with Western artistic techniques is evident in Guanyin of the Lotus. Zeng Hao is a native of Dunhuang, China. Dunhuang is an ancient city, and due to its location as the crossroads between the southern silk road and the way to India, it has a significant history. The Dunhuang art movement is centered around the nearly 500 caves that were developed into a monastery housing a cultural center in the 4th century AD. Recently discovered, this cultural center was active for over a thousand years and became an amazing depository of documents, and various works of art, including grottos with murals and frescos. Zeng Hao created a series of paintings called the Dunhuang Flying series, based on the art of his ancient hometown. This painting of Guanyin is one of his Dunhuang Goddesses. In Chinese folklore, Guanyin is worshipped as the goddess of mothers and fertility, the embodiment of empathy, compassion and unconditional love. Guanyin protects and when necessary rescues the vulnerable and is also seen as the protector of seafarers. Many scholars have noted the similarities between the way Guanyin was portrayed in Chinese artwork and the way Christians have portrayed the Virgin Mary in western art.
