A number of sculptures made around the 16th century depict Virupa with a long-life vase (kalasha) topped with a skull cup (kapala) next to him.
He has a large raised urna on his forehead, a moustache and low beard, his elongated earlobes are pierced. His tiara matches his garland of flowers. He wears bone jewellery with rectangular connector-beads and a cross-belt with a square piece in the middle.
His meditation belt is incised with a traditional motif.
The Mahasiddha is seated on an antelope skin over a ‘rocky formation pedestal’, a long-life vase topped with a skull cup in front of him. His raised knee is held by a thin meditation belt, the foot rests on a lotus supported by an apsara sculpted at the front of the base, next to snow lions. There is a standing figure before him (maybe the donor). His hair is tied in a top knot, he has bulging eyes and thick eyebrows, no urna, a small moustache, jawline beard and goatee, his right hand doing the karana mudra, the other holding a (missing) skull cup. He is adorned with a small tiara over a row of thick hair locks, some jewellery and a cross-belt with a flower at the centre which could be construed as a visvajra (double thunderbolt sceptre).
This singular piece depicts Virupa with the same type of jewellery as the first figure in this post. The bottom part of the double-lotus pedestal is incised with the same foliate pattern as seen before on some meditation belts.
He has a large raised urna on his forehead, a moustache and an incised beard along his jawline, his ears and facial contours are not as well defined as the rest of the body.
His hair is rolled up into a chignon. A small portion of the lotus base is plain.
His short dhoti is incised with a floral motif, the meditation belt has a geometrical motif at the back and a floral and foliate motif at the front.
There is a trident and a standing figure (maybe the donor, or a consort) by his side. He is adorned with a profusion of Chinese-style beaded (human bone) ornaments, a floral tiara, large hoops. He wears a short dhoti and his right knee is loosely bound with a thin meditation belt. He holds a skull cup in his left hand and does the karana mudra with the other.
