The Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara by AsianArtMuseum Apr 15, 2013

Description

Place of origin: China
Date: approx. 1100-1200 (Song dynasty)
Material: Wood

The Avery Brundage Collection, B60S24+

This image depicts Avalokiteshvara seated in the position of royal ease, the right hand resting on a bent knee and the left in the gift-granting gesture. He is dressed as an Indian prince in a long, fluidly carved garment. His chest is crisscrossed with sashes, scarves and delicately rendered jewels. Unlike most other representations of Avalokiteshvara, this figure does not wear an image of his spiritual father, the buddha Amitabha, in its crown.

It seems to me that if you can use multiple images to make a three dimensional plan for something, you can use movie film of a building or statue to get that.
