Eleven-headed, thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara, a Bodhisattva of compassion.
"Avalokiteshvara, who has different forms with different names, is the most popular deity in Mahayana Buddhist Pantheon. In this present form, he is also known as Samantamukha or the “All sided one”, i.e. the god who looks in every direction to help and save all. It is said that the thousand arms extend his helping hands toward all beings, and ten of his heads indicate his attainment of the ten Bodhisattva stages, with the eleventh, the head of Amitabha Buddha, indicating his being the incarnation of the universal compassion of all Buddhas. The ten heads may also stand for his looking after beings throughout the ten direction of space, the eleventh head representing the all-encompassing Buddha wisdom.”
