Avalokitesvara on Potalaka1

Avalokitesvara on Potalaka水月觀音圖


This painting shows a scene in Avatamsaka Sutra where a boy monk named Seonjae meets Avalokitesvara during his journey to attain enlightenment. At the center Avalokitesvara is half-sitting on a rock by the water stretching out his hand. The detailed portrayal of the white and transparent surplice is of incomparability. The overall composition is imbued with dignity and serenity.
