Avalokiteshvara, in his Padmapani (lotus bearer) form, is standing on a lotus (his attendants on each side of him) with a long-stemmed lotus leaning on each arm, and a lotus flower in the palm of one hand. He is wearing princely jewellery, a scared thread, and a mitre-like crown typical of Nepal with an effigy of Amitabha in the middle. The transparency of his skirt reveals a short dhoti and a marked knee cap (left-hand side of the picture). The broad sash across his thighs is also typical of Nepalese sculptures throughout the centuries although the shape varies. There is a flaming halo behind his head that blends into the arch of heaven.
Out of interest, this figure with elegant body proportions and soft facial features may be compared with a wooden 14th century circa sculpture of Avalokiteshvara in his Phapga Lokeshvara form published by John Eskenazi, with the same type of crown but thicker limbs and sharper facial features.
