Avalokiteshvara is the Bodhisattva of
the Great Compassion, excepted by all Buddhist traditions
and famously known as Kuan Yin (a feminine form) by the

Thangka, he is potrayed with eleven heads and thousand arms,
known as the Cosmic Manifestation of Great Compassion.
Eight of His arms are in various auspicious mudras and the
remaining arms forming a Mandala (Auspicious Signs). All
his heads are crowned with gems studded head gears and arms
forming a fan like appearance. An eye is formed in each of
His palm. The eleventh head on the summit is Amitabha
Buddha, the Buddha of the Western Paradise.
Thangka is a
painted or embroidered banner which was hung in a monastery or
a family altar and carried by lamas in ceremonial processions.
In Tibetan the word 'than' means flat and the suffix 'ka'
stands for painting. The Thangka is thus a kind of painting
done on flat surface but which can be rolled up when not
required for display. The most common shape of a Thangka is
the upright rectangular form. Thangkas are painted on cotton
canvas with water soluble pigments, both mineral and organic,
tempered with a herb and glue solution. The entire process
demands great mastery over the drawing and perfect
understanding of iconometric principles.
