As far as facial features, garments and the position of the hands are concerned, this sculpture is very similar to a 17th century dark bronze sculpture of the fifth dalai lama published in a previous post. On this gilt version, the manuscript is missing from his hand and he sits on a single cushion, decorated with double thunderbolts or visvajras.
At first glance, this one looks exactly like a 17th century sculpture also published in a previous post but there are three cushions instead of two and the folds of the garment are slightly different. The front of the cushions is finely decorated with various symbols.
The front of these cushions is more showy. The first two are decorated with thunderbolts (single and double) and there is a geometrical frieze on the third one.
This is a completely different portrait of him, with a thinner face and masses of cloth around him. He holds a manuscript in his left hand and wears the pointed Sakya hat.
