This realistic portrait of a mahasiddha, with a vajra in his right hand and a skull cup filled with blood on the other side, is a mixture of classical elements (especially the body shape and proportions) and modern elements such as the earrings (big hoops with a large almond-shaped pendant) armbands and anklets, the way the hair is plaited and forms a tiered conical shape, the way his moustache, goatee and beard are sculpted. His loin cloth is fastened with a large ribbon knotted at the front and he wears a thin meditation belt around the shoulder (rather than around the waist).
This is a good imitation of 15th-16th century metal sculptures of mahasiddhas seated in a yogic position, adorned with spiral-shaped earrings, bone ornaments and cross-belt, wearing nothing but a short loin cloth, the chignon fastened with a head band. This one holds a (missing) object in his left hand and does the bhumisparsha mudra with the other.
This curious figure with a doll-like body is adorned with attributes proper to wrathful deities (a snake worn as a sacred cord, snake armbands, bracelets and anklets, a mongoose and a citrus fruit normally associated with Jambhala).
He has a conical chignon and a five-leaf crown adorned with skulls, there is a raised urna on his forehead. The treatment of the eyebrows and moustache recalls Chinese sculptures of Virupa published in a previous post.
