Subject:Water-Moon Avalokitesvara painting
Posted By: jeff sutton Tue, Oct 24, 2023 IP: 2600:6c67:2cf0:c10::

Looking for any information on this painting (possibly a woodblock, but seems original to me) made to look like a rubbing of the water-moon Avalokitesvara with Sudhana, the pilgram, at the feet, along with a statue of Amitabha on Avalokitesvara's head. The large seal on the bottom is hard to make out besides it's top half. Thanks for any information - Cheers

its a stone rubbing of a guanyin, i would say. chinese mounting, probably a souvenir sold at the place the stone is kept.
Its one of the 33 forms the Guanyin (Kannon) will appear in.
