A very beautiful wallpaper of the Eleven Headed Thousand Armed Thousand Eyed Avalokitesvara (ekādaśamukha sahasrabhuja sahasranetra avalokiteśvara – एकादशमुख सहस्रभुज सहस्रनेत्र अवलोकितेश्वर )  accompanied with the Great Compassion Mantra.  This Typical Chinese Guan Yin/Kuan Yin figure is Androgynous. The Eleven heads are arranged in three layers. The Principal 42 arms carry various weapons and instruments, the remaining multitude of the arms, form the background. Each of the palms carry an Eye. Avalokitesvara is seen standing over a Lotus. Next to the Thousand Armed Avalokitesvara are seen scrolls where the Great Compassion Mantra is inscribed in Chinese (Read Top – >Down, Right -> left – The usual reading order of Classical Chinese )
