A THANGKA OF SAHASRABHUJA LOKESHVARA
TIBET, EARLY 20TH CENTURY

With one-thousand arms and one-thousand eyes, Sahasrabhuja Lokeshvara is one of the many forms of the bodhisattva of compassion, Avalokiteshvara. He emerges from a lake, surrounded by an array of ruyi-shaped auspicious clouds. A closely related example in a private collection shares the same crown, jewels, and sparse landscape with large flowers (HAR 73462).

Provenance
Private European Collection assembled in the 1960s and 1970s
