Wood with gesso and pigment
Pictures of the bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (अवलोकितेश्वर, "the Lord who appears down"), the personification of the Buddhist virtue of compassion, have been very common in China rom the tenth to fourteenth century. Figures seated in relaxed poses represent the bodhisattva at lesiure in his personal realm, a paradisiacal planet thought to be positioned on the seacoast of the Fujian Province. The unusual belt worn by this figure illustrates the taste of the Qidan people of the northeast, who ruled significantly of northern China as the Lian dynasty from the tenth to the early 12th century.

Even so, these new accommodations were short-term soon after negotiations with the city of New York, the Met acquired land on the east side of Central Park, where it constructed its permanent home, a red-brick Gothic Revival stone "mausoleum" created by American architects Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mold.
