For millenia, Quan Yin has epitomized the great ideal of Mahayana Buddhism in her role as bodhisattva, a "being of Bodhi,” or enlightenment, who is destined to become a Buddha but has foregone the bliss of Nirvana with a vow to help all of humanity to evolve into the Next Human.
Quan Yin carries the Goddess and Divine Mother aspect of Buddhism, and is comparable to Mother Mary in Christianity. In the ancient Egyptian mystery schools she is represented by Isis. In Hinduism; she is Shakti, wife of Shiva. In Tibetan Buddhism; Green Tara.
In its proper form it is Kuanshih Yin, which means "She who harkens to the cries of the world." In Korea, Japan, and China she is called Quan Yin, a celestial bodhisattva and ascended master. One of her duties in the celestial spheres is to sit on the board of the Lord of Karma.
Quan Yin's name is a translation of the Sanskrit name, Avalokitesvara, which to Tibetans is Buddha's earthly representative and chief guardian of the dharma (doctrine) until the advent of Maitreya Buddha. Quan Yin is the embodiment of compassion and unconditional love expressed as the Feminine Divine.

Sublimation onto metal is a new, cutting edge, way to reproduce an image, but has been used in the textile industry for decades. Sublimation itself is the process of going from a solid to a gas, back to a solid - skipping the liquid state.The image is first printed onto a transfer paper and then is adhered to pretreated aluminum (other substrates such as tile, wood, or glass are also available).The aluminum and transfer paper are placed into a custom heat press, which is heated to temperatures exceeding 380 degrees Fahrenheit. While being subjected to extreme heat and pressure, the dyes from the transfer paper turn into a gas, are pressed into the surface of the metal, and then solidify into the treated aluminum. As the dyes cool they are permanently infused beneath the surface of the metal substrate.
