Description: The Bodhisattva Lokeshvara as he is often called in the inscriptions. In essence associated with the idea of compassion, he is primarily invoked as a protector and as the savior of suffering humanity. The Bodhisattva is represented with single head and eight arms. The metaphor is clearly meant to express the Bodhisattva's compassion in all the worlds.

This Lokeshvara, the face with its highly refined features, displays the intense spirituality typical of the art of Jayavaraman VII; the body, admirably modeled, is more slender and elegant than that of any other known image of the Bodhisattva.
