Kuan Yin is the compassionate Saviouress of the East. Throughout the Orient altars dedicated to this Mother of Mercy can be found in temples, homes and wayside grottoes and prayers to her presence and her flame are incessantly on the lips of devotees as they seek her guidance and succor in every area of life.
Here she is in a reclining posture. Her right hand in a typical Karana Mudra, or hand gesture used to banish and repel negative energy. So while in repose she is never really at rest.
