1000 armed and 1000 eyes Avalokiteshvara:
Avalokiteshvara is the Bodhisattva of the Great Compassion, excepted by all Buddhist traditions and famously known as Kuan Yin (a feminine form) by the Chinese. His vast vows is to deliver all sentient beings from falling into evil states and lead them towards salvation or enlightenment. He is mostly represented by the seed mantra OM MANI PADME HUM ("Hail the jewel in the lotus!").
In this 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.
About of Thangka:
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.
