Adorned with simple jewellery and a tall three-leaf crown, his transparent dhoti held in place with a red belt with a pendant at the front, a matching sash worn across the hips and knotted on one side, Avalokiteshvara probably held the stem of a lotus in his left hand while doing the abhaya mudra with the other.
His hands do the vitarka and dhyana mudras, he wears a transparent robe that covers both shoulders.
This smooth dark bronze figure from the Licchavi period depicts a woman, perhaps a dancer, adorned with jewellery, wearing a long pleated skirt, her hair fastened in a fan-shaped bunch.
The bodhisattva holds an upright vajra in his right hand. His long dhoti, tied at the waist, has an incised hem. He wears a thin headband, large floral earrings, simple bracelets, a necklace with a pendant and large armbands.
