head of Guanyin

A Sunday afternoon spent looking and drawing in the two Carnegie Museums in Oakland (Art and Natural History share a connected complex of buildings). This was drawn in pencil. The head is monumental - carved of wood, probably four feet high, and atop a pedestal so that you tip your head back to see her. Yuan Dynasty, 1279-1368, China. She peacefully dominates one end of a gallery.
