Avalokiteshvara is identified through the effigy of Amitabha in his headdress and the long-stem lotus in his left hand. His ankle-length dhoti is held in place with a belt. He wears a simple necklace, armbands and bracelets and a wide sash across his chest. The crown with very low panels and the tall chignon are typical of Pala India.
Manjushri holds a manuscript in his left hand while making a symbolical gesture with the other. His dress and jewellery are quite similar to the previous statue but the crown made of three tall triangular panels is typical of the Nepalese Thakuri period.
Amitabha would normally have a begging bowl in his cupped hand. The very slender waist, punched navel and this type of crown are common features of Thakuri sculptures which originated in Pala India and made their way to Tibet via the artists of Nepal.
