"Quan Yin & Her Dragon" - an 8.5"x11" Fantasy PRINT
by Morbidly Adorable Artist Misty Benson
An 8.5"x11" Photo PRINT packaged in a Clear Sleeve
"Quan Yin has long been a symbol of compassion. Further investigation suggests that she has the ability to identify with the sorrow of another on such a level as to be effected as if it were her own; hence, her name has often been translated as "She who hears the cries of the world". She is often shown with a willow in her right hand to signify her bending yet unbreakable nature. In her left hand is a vase from which she pours compassion on the world. The lotus signifies the purity of a flower that grows from mud. It is likened to the purity of the soul that stays pure even when life gets muddy. The beads around her neck and the Buddha on her head symbolize her devotion to Buddhism and its tenets. Draped in white for purity, Quan Yin sits atop a dragon symbolizing spirituality, wisdom, strength, and divine powers of transformation. Quan Yin has many manifestations and meanings. This is just a brief outline of her nature. For me, she is a calming presence in my household!"

You are bidding on a PRINT from an original painting, painted by myself, Misty* (gossamerfaery). The actual dimensions of the print are approximately 8"x10" with a white mounting border (making the overall piece 8.5"x11") in the case of custom framing. Otherwise, the border along with a minor amount of image may be trimmed to fit any standard 8"x10" frame, photo album, or even pinned to the wall.
Framing/Displaying your prints. As with art in general, you should keep your prints away from direct sunlight or harsh artificial light. Even lightfast inks cannot withstand harsh light for long. If you frame your prints, UV-blocking glass is the best option.
The inks used in these prints show the full color range of the original work. As long as you store your prints out of direct light and enclosed in an airtight sleeve, jacket, or photo frame to minimize exposure to light and humidity, you can greatly enhance the life of your new art.
