This copper sculpture was almost certainly made by a Newar artist in Tibet (the low crown and ornate jewellery correspond to the Nepalese Malla period). The deity holds a flaming jewel or ratna in his right hand and a bell or ghanta in his left hand. The round urna and the use of turquoise alone correspond to the Tibetan fashion. Ratnasambhava normally displays the gesture of supreme generosity with his right hand, in which he may hold a gem, and the gesture of meditation with his left hand. He may also hold a jewel and a bell on paintings, rarely on sculptures.
