Some sculptures depict Virupa with a half vajra on top of his chignon.
He is seated on an antelope skin over a single-lotus base, adorned with his traditional garland of flowers and matching tiara, bone ornaments, cross-belt with a flower in the centre. His raised knee is held by a meditation belt incised with a motif.
He wears a short dhoti incised with a floral and foliate pattern. Long strands of matted hair fall over his back.
This (later?) gilt version is very similar to the previous sculpture.
On closer inspection, his necklace and earrings are different, the nipples are not visible, the bone ornaments have smaller beads…
The beading doesn’t cover the lotus base all the way round, the meditation belt is narrower and has no decoration, nor does the lower garment. There is no inscription on the back of the base.
