Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara is instantly recognisable from His thousand limbs and eleven heads. Legend has it that when he glanced into ihaloka (mortal realm of existence) from His residence at Mount Potala, His head split into infinite parts from the trauma prevailing herein; and then He grew infinite limbs in order to work towards alleviating the same.


The brass Avalokiteshvara murti that you see on this page depicts Him standing with His anteriormost hands joined in namaskaram. The contemplative composure is consistent for the first nine heads arranged in concentric circles of three above His shoulders; while the tenth one further above is wrathful in appearance, and the eleventh one at the zenith is a chhavi (image) of the Buddha Himself. The thousand arms make for a perfectly symmetrical silhouette. The six arms which are discernible bear some ritual implements marked out in metallic colour.


A coppery, washed-out green predominates the colour palette of the sculpture. The same is punctuated by metallic hints of gold in the crown and hem regions, the adornments and implements, as well as the pedestal.
