Avalokiteshvara Brocade Thangka Painting is a classic Tibetan and Himalayan handpainted thangka featuring the image of Avalokiteshvara, an enlightened being in Mahayana Buddhism renowned for benevolence and mercy. Thangkas are crafted on fabric and commonly utilize for meditation, rituals, and as a tool for visualization in Buddhist meditation.
Avalokiteshvara is the central figure in this Brocade Thangka Painting, usually depicted in a seated or standing posture with multiple arms and heads - symbolizing his ability to help multitudes of beings at once. Each hand usually holds a representation of peace, such as a lotus flower, mala beads, or a vase of compassion. Avalokiteshvara is adorned with impressive jewelry and a crown, signifying his divine status. The crown often features an image of the Buddha Amitabha, reflecting Avalokiteshvara's link to the Pure Land of Amitabha. The painting is further enriched with a decorative brocade fabric border.
