Probably made in Western Tibet, this padmapani form of Avalokiteshvara stands on a Kashmiri-style plinth complete with a mandorla-cum-halo incised with flames.
The bodhisattva holds the stem of a large lotus in his left hand and displays a lotus in the palm of the other hand. The belt holding his lower garment has a singular ribbon pendant.
Possibly a copy of a Nepalese Thakuri-style sculpture, but with thicker, less defined limbs.
This other padmapani has a pot of water fastened to the fingers of his right hand, a feature we have seen before on sculptures of the same period attributed to Western Tibet (like the geometrical incisions on his heavy belt associated with the Ngari district). His short dhoti has a stippled pattern that includes two lotuses over his knee caps. His tall chignon, low crown with three tiny leaves and oversize bows are derived from the Indian Pala-style.
Another figure with tall chignon, low crown, large bows and short striped dhoti with thick hems. He holds a pot of water in his right hand and has an effigy of Amitabha in his headdress.
A rare dark bronze sculpture with Indian facial features and jewellery, a long sacred thread, a short lower garment incised with a floral pattern, a crown with three triangular panels, the middle one taller than the others (West Tibetan style), including an effigy of Amitabha at the front.
Apart from the lotus he holds in his left hand, another lotus springs from the base, on the other side. There is a lotus engraved in the palm of his right hand.
