The iconography for Amoghapasha, who is worshipped mainly in Nepal, is one head and 2, 4, 6, 8, or 12 hands (even 20 according to Alice Getty) and his main attribute is the noose (pasha). His relationship with Avalokiteshvara is not clear, as explained on HAR (yet the first two items below are labelled ‘Avalokiteshvara – Amoghapasha’ on the same website, which adds to the confusion).
A rare twelve-arm bodhisattva with the effigy of a standing figure at the front of his chignon. His main right hand is in the fear-allaying gesture, the left one holds the stem of an open lotus; his upper right hand is held palm out by his ear, the left one holds a book/manuscript. The remaining left hands hold a fruit?, two water pots, a pearl. The remaining right hands hold flames?, a large flower, two of them are in the gesture of supreme generosity. The noose is missing.
This one has an effigy of Amitabha in his headdress. His main hands and the upper ones are as before, the remaining left hands hold a fruit, two ritual water pots (kundika), a pearl (between the ring finger and the thumb), the stem of a lotus now lost. The remaining right hands hold flames, raining jewels, two of them express supreme generosity. The noose is missing.
The eight-arm form always includes a trident made of lotus stalks (tridandi) in one of his left hands. When his main right hand makes the fear-allaying gesture, the remaining right hands hold a rosary and a noose, the lower one is in the gesture of supreme generosity, the remaining left hands hold a book and a water pot.
The minute effigy of Amitabha at the base of the central leaf on his crown and the fact that he once had eight arms indicate that this Nepalese sculpture depicts Amoghapasha Lokeshvara.
