This sculpture, probably made by an Indian artist, depicts a mahasiddha with no facial hair or urna, adorned with jewellery and bone ormaments, his left hand calling the Earth to witness, his right hand in vitarka mudra.
His face is painted with cold gold and pigments, the hair with lapis lazuli powder and adorned with a five-skull tiara with side bows, his Pala-style chignon topped with a lotus bud finial.
Obviously made in the same workshop, this mahasiddha holds a skull cup filled with blood in his left hand.
He does the tarjani mudra (or karana mudra) with his right hand.
On this sculpture, the facial features are painted – in the Tibetan fashion with cold gold and pigments – to give the mahasiddha a ferocious appearance.
He wears nothing but spiral-shaped earrings. His hair is gathered in a top knot and dyed with lapis lazuli powder.
