Crystal Buddha, Guanyin, Heartfelt Compassion in Each Step

$3,180.00

The Collection: Crystal Buddha Sculpture

Design Description:

Guanyin, the Chinese version of the bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, appears in thirty-three different manifestations, so as to meet the needs of the various types of beings who call out for her intercession and to whom she teaches the Dharma. This is a novel representation of Guanyin, as it is neither her original form nor one of her traditional thirty-three manifestations. She is depicted in her usual standing posture, holding a rosary, and wearing a magnificent jeweled necklace; on her head is a small statue of the buddha Amitabha. She rides on her customary mount, the chaotianhou, a mythical beast said to be the son of the Dragon King. Serving as a type of guardian, it snarls at the sky. Its function is to impart the will of heaven to the world, and to transmit the sentiments of the people to heaven. The precision with which this piece manifests Guanyin’s countenance and bearing attest to the level of mastery attained by the artist over decades of painstaking work. Guanyin’s tranquil bearing and fluttering robe covey a sense of fortitude amidst the vicissitudes of life. Overall, this exquisite sculpture exudes a tangible sense of benevolence and solicitude for the welfare of all sentient beings.

觀世音菩薩除了本尊還可以化現三十二種不同的法相,這是為了幫助各種不同根性和類別的眾生,而為之說法,方便教化眾生。此作品沒有特別設定是觀音菩薩的本尊或是三十三法相之一。作品是以觀音菩薩傳統常見的站姿,菩薩手持念珠,身上佩戴華麗莊嚴的瓔珞,頭冠上頂著小尊的阿彌陀佛寶像,腳上有著觀音菩薩特定的坐騎——神獸「朝天吼」,傳說是龍王的兒子,有守望習慣,神情展現對天咆哮,被視為向上傳天意,向下達民情的形象。此作品充分表現出藝術家在超過二十年的佛像雕塑中,對整體觀音菩薩的神情、姿態,有著充分的掌握和自信。菩薩慈悲的眼神,衣摺飄動的生動感,立於風中的帶有著堅毅精神,郤又充滿溫柔的法相。整體造形,流露出菩蕯的係念眾生、關愛慈悲之情。

Heartfelt Compassion in Each Step

Recall compassion,
Pass through this mortal world
And eliminate ignorance;
With each step, evolution.

步步慈心

一念慈悲
凌渡人間
除無明
步步度化。

Artist/Founder Loretta H. Yang leads a team of experienced artisans to create arts that honor the richness of cultural heritage and value.

Step No. 1: Design and sculpting

Alt

Step 2 of the process involves coating our original clay sculpture in silicone. Layer after layer (3 to 7 layers) is fastidiously coated to produce a negative mold, a crucial step in capturing the prevision of the sculpture. Each layer must dry completely before additional layer is applied, thickness must be uniform to prevent leakage of wax. Once complete, the clay is removed to reveal a negative silicone mold.

Step No. 2: Silicone molding

Alt

Pour molten wax into the negative silicone mold.

Step No. 3: Infusion of molten wax. Fill wax into a negative mold.

Alt

Once wax has solidified and cooled, release the wax form by carefully peeling back the silicone mold. Like a butterfly molting, the silicon is shed to reveal a positive wax form.

Step No. 4: Shedding of silicon mold to obtain the wax form

Alt

A careful refinement of the wax sculpture. Because every microinch and subtlety plays its own role in the grand scheme of beauty. Our artists refine the wax mold to its final perfection.

Step No. 5: Wax form refinement; removing imperfections

Alt

The wax mold is placed on a wooden plank in a metal container and plaster is poured and solidified. Embedding wax form with fire-resistant plaster.

Step No. 6: Coating the wax sculpture with plaster to form a refractory mold

Alt

Wax is steamed out of the plaster under high heat yielding a negative plaster mold.

Step No. 7: Removal of wax with steam—the essence of the “lost-wax” process

Alt

Liuli ingredients are created through unique firing and processing of glass. Color and size appropriate pieces are placed within the plaster and fired.

Step No 8: Choosing color; kiln firing

Alt

Fire and melt. Under intense heat, a new vision of transparency and clarity is born.

Step No. 9: Re-firing at 1,400 degrees Celsius

Alt

Extreme patience and care are necessary when removing the plaster to prevent damage.

Step No. 10: Removal of plaster mold

When the art pieces emerge, our masters step in to carefully chip away the plaster mold. Like excavating fragile archaeological relics, one false move and you're left with broken shards.

Alt

First comes die-cutting - smoothing the crystal down to the last microinch. Rough polish, removal of excess support, refinement and fine surface polish with a high-speed fabric wheel.

Step No. 11: Retouching of details; burnishing and polishing

Our artist refines and re-polishes each and every detail yet again.

Alt

An etched number on the base of each piece indicates its limited edition and reminds us to never stop creating. After the engraving - an official LIULI artwork is born.

Step No.12: Final inspection; etching of serial number; packaging
