Vajrapani, the ‘thunderbolt bearer’ is holding a very large thunderbolt or vajra horizontally in his right hand. He stands on a small single-lotus base with large flat petals point upwards, the rim is decorated with a row of thick beading. He wears a short dhoti folded in the Swat Valley fashion and a flat wavy celestial scarf with a large tassel at one end, not uncommon to standing Swat Valley sculptures. The treatment of the torso, the short necklace with large beads and the rich copper alloy recall a 7th-8th c. standing Maitreya thought to be from Kashmir, published in a previous post under ‘Jammu and Kashmir’. His low crown, hairstyle and facial features recall the late Gandhara style.
