This concept was inspired by the legend of Guanyin: the Chinese Goddess of Mercy whose name means, ‘one who listens to the cries of the world.’ Here we see her sitting in the middle of some desert, draped by green Bonsai ‘wings,’ beckoning us forward as if to indicate the presence of water for any wayward traveller, or our place in the heart of the lotus she holds forth, destined to sail to Sukhāvatī (‘Land of Bliss’).
