Virupa is seated on an animal skin (deer or antelope) over a double-lotus base with wide flat petals (a style often associated with the 16th century), wearing a short loin cloth wrapped around his waist, a Chinese-style cross-belt and jewellery, a floral tiara over a row of large locks of hair, and a rectangular object on his chignon (see last but one post on Virupa). There is no urna on his forehead.
On this more traditional Tibetan image, he wears floral jewellery and a matching garland and tiara.
These Nepalese-style gilt copper or gilt copper alloy sculpture depicts him with turquoise inlaid bone ornaments.
Even his bone apron and the headband that fastens his chignon are decorated with turquoise.
