This unidentified mahasiddha with an ascetic look holds a drum above head level in his left hand, his right hand does the fear-allaying gesture. He is resting on his right knee over an animal skin (antelope or deer) on a pedestal decorated with scrolls at the front. His hair is tied and topped with a half-vajra finial.
There is a large pot or urn by his side with a lotus-shaped base and lid.
He wears a loin cloth with an incised edge, bone ornaments and a cross-belt.
This very similar sculpture possibly comes from the same workshop.
The emaciated face has been painted with cold gold and pigments, his hair is dyed red.
This small (11 cm) sculpture depicts a well-nourished mahasiddha (possibly Naropa) seated with his legs loosely folded and wearing a meditation belt incised with a design we have seen before on 16th century works. There is a human hide across his back, a vajra in his right hand and a skull cup with flaming jewels in the other. He is adorned with jewellery, bone ornaments, a Chinese-style cross-belt, a five-leaf crown with skulls, his long matted hair is gathered in a large chignon adorned with beading and topped with a half-vajra finial.
