Vajrasattva is a form of Vajradhara, the quintessential buddha, who normally holds a bell against his left hip and a vajra in his right hand, at heart level, although here it is missing. This singular figure has realistic body proportions, with beautifully crafted hands and feet, a typically Tibetan moon-like face expressing serenity, and some rather small ears. His chignon is topped with a lotus bud finial. He wears a low crown made of three foliate panels secured with a thin wire at the back, upward flowing ribbons and rosettes., large hoops and princely jewellery. Some long strands of hair fall over his shoulders. His transparent ankle-length dhoti has an incised hem and is held in place with an equally incised belt or sash knotted at the back. His armbands match the design of his crown.
