Seated in the vajra position, Avalokiteshvara has two hands in prayer and another two holding a rosary and a lotus flower. This ‘Shadakshari Lokeshvara’ form is thought to be the embodiment of the ‘om mani padme hum’ mantra. He has silver-inlaid eyes and urna, a small effigy of Amitabha on the central panel of his tiara, the latter incised with a geometrical motif that matches the decoration on the two-tier plinth of the tall lotus base on which he sits. His jewellery and his long dhoti are also decorated with incisions, the end of the garment forms a double-scallop shape below his ankles.
This masterpiece depicts him with an elaborate pyramidal headdress including small flowers, enhanced by showy side bows.
This one wears a knee-length dhoti and a thin celestial scarf that shows below his elbows. There is a large effigy of Amitabha between his low tiara and his tall Indian-style chignon (jatamukata).
