This finely coloured print shows Eleven-faced Greatly Compassionate One (Skt. Ekadashamukha Mahakarunika). His body color is pure, clear and bright as rock crystal. He possesses eleven faces and eight arms. With the first two hands, he makes the gesture of adoration before his chest. In the remaining right hands, he holds a rosary, a wheel and displays the gesture of boon-granting. In his left, he holds a white lotus, a bow and an arrow and a vase. There are several prints of Avalokiteshvara in the Leder collection designed and executed in the same fashion.
