This Avalokiteshvara is one of the earliest known to be from Thailand. Usually, the bodhisattva stands in a relaxed pose with one hip thrust to the side. Here, he is in a rigid posture with both knees firmly locked (samabhanga). The general proportions of the body and the way it is modeled are based on North Indian prototypes of the Gupta period, like those found at Deogarh. This is a slimmer and more elegant figure, approximately two centuries later in date. Avalokiteshvara can be identified by the antelope skin (ajina), barely perceptible in front but more visible in back, that covers his left shoulder and by the seated image of Amitabha, the Buddha of the Western Paradise and Avalokiteshvara's spiritual father, placed in his piled-up hair.
