Avalokitesvara by Lok Chitrakar

This work by celebrated artist Lok Chitrakar is of Avalokitesvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. He guards the world in the time between the historical Shakyamuni Buddha and the future Buddha, Maitreya. Avalokitesvara vowed that he would not rest until he had liberated all beings from suffering, and his mantra is the famous 'Om Mani Padme Hum.' This lovely watercolor displays Chitrakar’s mastery of Newar Design style through its use of traditional iconography, while also demonstrating his contemporary creativity in its natural aspects.
