The Bodhisattva of Compassion is seated here in the posture of royal ease: his right knee is bent vertically, his left knee is bent horizontally, and his left leg is tucked into his body. He uses his left arm for support, while his right arm lies loosely across his knee.
In its composition, this statue conforms to the stylistic ideal of the period of its creation. The broad, almost closed eyes are located high up in the narrow face and the mouth is tiny. This lends the Bodhisattva a detached expression.
