The Bodhisattva is the central figure of Mahayana Buddhism. He has attained a high spiritual level but he differs his enlightenment to help other men on the spiritual path.
Here we see a representation of Guanyin (Avalokitesvara in Sanskrit), the bodhisattva of compassion. While in India, this bodhisattva is still depicted as a man, in regions further east of Asia he looks like an androgynous, even a woman. Unlike the soberly dressed Buddha, bodhisattvas often wear royal garments, ornaments, crowns and other jewels. This work shows a remarkable necklace enhanced with two entangled dragons.
The attitude represented is that of the “royal relaxation” (Maharaja-lilasana in sancrit).
