Seated Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Infinite Compassion
Chosying Dorje (the Tenth Karmapa)
H. 6 3/4 in. (17.2 cm)
Louis V. Bell and Dodge Funds, 1972
This image of the Bodhisattva of Infinite Compassion belongs to a small group of sculptures and paintings that are believed to have been made by Chosying Dorje (1604–1674), the Tenth Karmapa. It is made in the Kashmiri style, reflecting the circulation of Buddhist imagery from Kashmir, in Tibet, as well as the influence of Kashmiri artists known to have been recruited by Tibetan patrons, and, no doubt, of others who were itinerant.
