Avalokiteśvara (Sanskrit: अवलोकितेश्वर, "Lord who looks down") is a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. This bodhisattva is variably depicted and described and is portrayed in different cultures as either female or male. In Chinese Buddhism, Avalokiteśvara has become the somewhat different female figure Guanyin. In Cambodia, he appears as Lokeśvara. | Cambodia, 11th century | The Metropolitan Museum of Art
