Lord Avalokiteshvara, emanation of Shiva Himself and birther of the brightest bodies in the heavens. The very embodiment of compassion, one who strives tirelessly for the well-being of those who turn to Him in distress. Also known as Padmapani, He is expounded in the most well-known of the Mahayana sootras, the Lotus Sootras, and comes with at least thirty-three different manifestations, not all of them masculine. The statue that you see on this page depicts Him in His solitary masculine beauty.

He rests upon the pistil of a gigantic bloom of lotus. A leg is raised upon the seat whilst the other one dangles, a stance called lalitasana that is to be found in the seated iconographies of most Hindu and Buddhist deities. Unlike the traditional robe of buddhas and bodhisattvas, Lord Avalokiteshvara here is clad in a silk dhoti and minimal adornments. A long-stemmed close-petalled lotus is in His left hands, while the right hands are gathered in divine mudras (He is chaturbhujadhari, one who is possessed of four arms)

This padmasana (lotus-throne) seated composition of Lord Avalokiteshvara would be a monotone composition if not for the scintillating bits of gold colour on the same. The base charcoal blue hue is set off by the hints of gold that mark out the adornments on His body, the embellishments on His crown, and the edges of the lotus petals. Finally, a floral discoid of gold is sculpted at the midline of the pedestal, from the arc of which emerges a thick leafy vine.
