Tibet Avalokiteshvara

洪福遠 , 2004

The Avalokiteshvara image originates from Tibet Thang-ka and is an important expression of traditional Tibetan painting art. Thang-ka is famous for its gorgeous colors and strong decoration. Many Tibetan Buddhist Bodhisattvas and Dharma protectors are painted. This painting can be hung at home and can be used to ward off evil spirits and pray for blessings. The Avalokiteshvara’s posture is elegant, head and body twist. She holds a lotus in her left hand, representing purity. Tibetans regard white as a symbol of auspiciousness and holiness. Therefore, the Avalokiteshvara is surrounded by white clouds in the picture. Avalokiteshvara can eliminate disasters and diseases for all sentient beings and sprinkle profound blessings on the world.
