Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara in Water Moon Form (Shuiyue Guanyin)
After the tenth century, one of the more prominent representations of Avalokiteshvara shows the bodhisattva seated with the right knee raised and the left leg crossed before the body. The posture represents the Water Moon manifestation, understood as a depiction of the divinity in his Pure Land, or personal paradise. -from metmuseum.org
