This very old Tsa Tsa comes from the region Tsaparang, Guge, Tholing in West Tibet [about 660 miles / 1000 km west of Lhasa].
The Bodhisattva Lokeshvara belongs to the early Bodhisattvas. As a rule it is depicted with a lotus as its most important distinguishing feature. His Tibetan name is Tshenresik, in Sanskrit Avalokiteshvara. This very early Tsa Tsa [12th - 14th century] shows him in his form as Lokeshvara.254 His depiction in the relaxed sitting position [Lilasana] is based on the ancient Indian tradition.
From his left hand, which is supported on the throne, a lotus flower emerges, which opens over his left shoulder. His hand lying on his right knee shows the gesture of giving [Varadamudra]. To the left of it is a stupa in the form of the nirvanastupa. A head aureole is decorated with a plastic band of large pearls. To his left and right we see an indecipherable Tibetan inscription.
