These “stick-like” brass sculptures, with tubular limbs and an underdeveloped chest, big hands and large facial features, are typical of Western Tibet. Avalokiteshvara in his simhanada form rides a snow lion.
On the first sculpture, he is sitting on a cushion and holding one of his attributes, the long-stemmed lotus. His earrings are out of proportion, stones are missing from the tall central panel of his crown. There are traces of cold gold on the face. The lion is depicted in a schematic way. The double-lotus base rests on a throne engraved with circles and dots, with two small constructions on each side and supported by Yakshas whos facial features match those of the lion.
On the second and more harmonious sculpture, Avalokiteshvara is resting directly on the lion and holding a long-stemmed lotus bud in his left hand. His small crown is decorated with rosettes/lotus flowers, a tall Indian-style chignon topped with a lotus bud finial sticks out of it. The rectangular platform under them is decorated with incised lotus petals with dots.
