One Silvery Moonlit Night

I have long admired an11th century Chinese sculpture depicting an East Asian deity of mercy and compassion located in the Asian Galleries at the Metropolitan Museum. Viewing it gives me a feeling of calmness.

I pay homage in my slightly surreal garden view. I can imagine other ways to picture this Bodhisattva. But that’s another painting.
