The Tibetan teacher, with moustache and goatee, his chignon decorated with a hair ornament, is holding a long-life vase in his left hand and a thunderbolt sceptre (vajra) in the other (somehow, the first picture is the wrong way round).
He wears a richly incised garment, some thick anklets and very large spiral earrings. There is a tiger skin under him over a very ornate tall double-lotus base with a lower row of very large beading. The manufacture of this piece is attributed to artists from the Tsang district of Central Tibet and the aspect is very much that of the ‘Mad man of Tsang’. Besides, mahasiddhas are not portrayed with monastic garments.
The following sculptures (undated but probably 16th century) depict him in his mahasiddha appearance, as seen on previous posts.
He holds a vajra in his right hand and probably a triratna (set of three flaming jewels) in a skull cup in the other. He sits on a tiger skin and a human hide.
Same as before.
He holds a vajra and a skull cup, a khatvanga is resting against his left arm.
Undated, Tibet, copper alloy, private collection, published on Himalayan Art Resources.
We can see the legs of the tiger and the hands of the human dangling over the single-lotus base. He holds the traditional vajra and kapala (skull cup).
