The figure itself is close in style to a 7th century Avalokiteshvara made of a darker alloy published in an early post but the back plate is the same as other works dated 8th century. He sits on a lion throne, one leg pendant and the foot resting on a lotus bud, flanked by attendants. There is an effigy of Amitabha in his headdress and he holds the stem of a large lotus flower in his left hand.
We will note the thick embroidered cushion under him, typical of the Kashmir and Gilgit area, and the three kneeling figures on the base, attendants or donors.
Even when the lower part is missing we can identify him through the lotus he holds in his left hand. The way he holds his right hand towards him is recurrent on Swat Valley works, where the “pensive pose” (with the head leaning towards the right hand) was popular.
This is another example. He is seated on a lion throne with tassels in the corners and a tasseled cloth at the front, a leg pendant, the foot resting on a lotus flower over a small plinth with an inscription, an effigy of Amitabha in his crown, part of his hair gathered in a fan shape, his eyes inlaid with silver, his nipples (and possibly his lips) with copper, adorned with floral earrings, matching necklace and armbands, a sacred thread, a celestial scarf, wearing a long and finely pleated dhoti.
