Vintage New Remarkable 30" Avalokiteshvara Handmade Brass Statue Hand-painted Black and Gilded. Ten Faces Buddha A Thousand Arms Bodhisattva, Embodiment of Compassion, Sculpture.
Avalokiteshvara is the earthly manifestation of the self-born eternal Buddha Amitabha, whose figure is represented in his headdress, and he guards the world in the interval between the departure of the historical Buddha, Gautama, and the appearance of the future buddha, Maitreya
A thousand arms and a thousand heads, Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara was so beset with grief and bewilderment at the goings-on of ihaloka (earthly realm of existence) that His head and limbs split into infinite pieces, yet resulting in a form that is in the divine sense more than complete.
Avalokiteshvara is the embodiment of the compassion of all Buddhas. Compassion is the proponent of the broad accumulation of virtues, which is one of the factors for the attainment of complete and perfect Buddhahood.
Avalokiteshvara's multiple tiers of heads are crowned by the face of Vajrapani and at the very top the face of Amitabha, symbols of uncompromising compassion and the boundless light of the awakened mind.
