    Measurements Height 39cm/16"

    An antique Java style standing bronze Lokeshvara sculpture in the 13th century Majapahit style. 

    Lokeshvara, also known as Avalokiteshvara or Guanyin, is one of the most revered and beloved figures in Buddhist iconography. As a Bodhisattva, Lokeshvara embodies the essence of compassion, representing the aspiration to alleviate suffering and attain enlightenment not only for oneself but also for all sentient beings.

    Lokeshvara serves as a profound embodiment of the Bodhisattva ideal, which prioritizes compassion and altruism over personal liberation. His primary role is to hear and respond to the cries of suffering beings, using his wisdom and skillful means to alleviate their afflictions.

    Lokeshvara is stood samabhanga on a simple pedestal that is loose mounted on a wood base. 

    His face has a downcast gaze. Upon his head he wears a decorative Javanese style tiara in front of his Kirita-Makuta or tall conical crown. This symbolises control over Positive and Negative attitudes. He has an aquiline nose and elongated earlobes with large ear rings.

    A top Lokeshvara's head can be seen a seated meditating Amitabha Buddha.

    In two of his four hands he holds a fly whisk and male beads. 

    His third hand is held in a gesture of teaching. The thumb and finger making a circle. 

    His lowered right hand makes the boon bestowing gesture (varada mudra). He holds his hands in the wish-fulfilling mudra: his right hand facing down and the palm outward.

    Behind a simple ring or aureole signifies his divinity. 

    Lokeshvara stands as a powerful symbol of compassion in Buddhism and beyond. As a Bodhisattva, he exemplifies the enduring aspiration to alleviate suffering and promote the well-being of all sentient beings.

    Lokeshvara's evolution over time and his cultural adaptability underscore the timeless relevance of his message, serving as an enduring source of inspiration for individuals seeking to cultivate compassion and make the world a more compassionate place.

    The sculpture has a wonderful azurite and malachite patina.

Many, many thanks. The Buddha is just perfect! I couldn't be any happier with his countenance, posture and the workmanship. And the little Manjusri is wonderful! I was not familiar with the symbolism of this figure--it is very intriguing.
