Cover Art & Artist

Kuan Yin: Mother of Compassion (acrylic on paper © 1/200) by Jonathan Weber

"This image of the Mother is inspired by the spiritual traditions of Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, and Tantra, where she has many names and forms. The Chinese name, Kuan Yin, is translated as 'She who hears the cries of the world,' for She is a Goddess that responds to the suffering of people and their desire for emancipation. She offers the nectar of wisdom that reveals the pure essence of eternal spirit, which cannot be tarnished, damaged or destroyed by the hardship and pain of this world."

Jonathan Weber is a visionary artist and mystic whose passion for gobal peace through individual awakening is manifested in painting, music, and writing. This piece was completed during a spiritual retreat in the Siskiyou Mts. of Southern Oregon.

The original of Kuan Yin will be on display, along with prints for sale, at the Goddess Gallery in Portland. Contact Jonathan.
