Lokapala at the Seattle Asian Art Museum

This pencil drawing was done in a couple of sittings at the Seattle Asian Art Museum. The sculpture is labeled as a lokapala from the 8th/9th century. Yeah, I didn't know what a lokapala was either but, according to Wikipedia, it is a guardian of the world and one of the "Four Heavenly Kings." It also makes for an imposing figure as it stares down at you from the museum wall.
