Seated on an antelope skin over an unusual lotus base with the upper row different from the lower one, the mahasiddha is adorned with a floral jewellery, a cross-belt with a large flower at the centre, a floral tiara and a garland of flowers. His navel is a hole punched into his belly.
He has a broad square face with silver-inlaid eyes, generous lips, no urna, a small moustache and a short beard below the jawline. There is a skull cup in his left hand.
Probably made by a Nepalese artist in Tibet, this gilt copper sculpture depicts Virupa with floral ornaments and an incised meditation belt, a skull cup in his left hand, raising his right index to stop the sun in its course. He is seated on an antelope skin over a Chinese-style double-lotus base typical of the 15th century. He has a small loin cloth tied around his waist.
His cross-belt has a large flower at the centre on both sides. His plaited hair is knotted into a chignon.
We see him here with Indian-style facial features, his hair tied in a fan-shaped bunch, seated on a single-lotus base.
His eyes are inlaid with silver. He is adorned with floral jewellery, a flora tiara with bows, and a cross-belt, part of which is inlaid with silver. He has a small moustache, no beard, no urna.
His meditation belt and his short dhoti are incised with a foliate scroll motif
This well-proportioned and realistic masterpiece shows us once more the excellent craftsmanship of the Tsang workshops around the 15th and 16th century.
He is richly adorned with floral jewellery and a matching tiara and garland, spiral-shaped earrings, a cross-belt with a large flower at the centre. He has thick oblique eyebrows and two frown lines in the middle.
