Kwan Yin (or Guanyin) by Phaedri -- is the bodhisattva associated with compassion as venerated by East Asian Buddhists, usually as a female. The name Guanyin is short for Guanshiyin, which means "Observing the Sounds (or Cries) of the World". It is generally accepted among East Asian adherents that Guanyin originated as the Sanskrit Avalokiteśvara (अवलोकितेश्वर). Commonly known in English as the Goddess of Mercy.

Foto: A Roman gold snake ring circa 1st Century BC - 1st Century AD. The body incised with cross-hatching, the looped tail and head both curved inwards. Photo and description from Christie's. Many Roman pieces have much more "finesse" than this vigorous, bold ring, which I find interesting to compare with e.g. Scythian pieces we have been looking at.

Ixcacao is the Mayan Goddess of the Cacao tree and the chocolate that is made from the the fruit of that tree. She had humble, but honorable origins as an ancient fertility goddess. She was an Earth Goddess in a matriarchal society where women gathered the crops and saw to it that everyone was fed. Banishing hunger and providing for the safety and security of Her people was Her Divine responsibility.
