Carbon-dated circa 15th century, Tibet, polychrome wood, private collection.
Detail of the middle panel of the crown with a bodhisattva represented like Phagpa Lokeshvara himself.
Detail of the belt and sash, both with a lotus design.
The broad face and the use of lapis lazuli powder in the hair indicate that this sculpture was made (or made to be worshipped) in Tibet. The two most remarkable features are the sash, decorated with a lotus design, and the central panel of the crown showing a miniature replica of the bodhisattva but without a crown (instead of an effigy of the buddha Amitabha normally associated with Avalokiteshvara).
