The gentle Avalokiteshvara is seated with the feet gathered afore the mooladhara chakra. The sole of the left foot faces skywards, while that of the right is placed firmly on the ground beneath Him. As such, the right knee is slightly raised, over which He rests the right hand. Its fingers are gathered in the vitarka mudra, an expression of dispensing vidya (awareness).
Supple, expressive limbs; and a long, slender torso. The metallic green colour finish of His bare body. Adornments in solid gold colour, accentuating each aspect of the beauteous Bodhisattva form. A rudimentary Kirtimukham at the centre of the neckpiece. Anklets and amulets down the length of His limbs. The thick, gold-coloured hems of His raiment, across the torso and round the waist.
Note the serene, lifelike face of Avalokiteshvara. The image of the Buddha Amitabha is engraved on the spire of His crown. Large karnakundalas that reach all the way down to His superb clavicles. They complement the angles of His face and its features made of minimalistic etchings.
