Milarepa is seated on an antelope skin with his legs gathered loosely, holding a skull cup in his left hand and raising his right hand to his ear, his long hair combed backwards, wearing a robe that covers one shoulder – no vest or cloak – his ears adorned with large spiral-shaped earrings. His eyes are inlaid with silver, his sash with copper.
This is another standard image of the Tibetan hero, seated on a single-lotus base with curly petals.
As on the previous sculpture, the hem of his robe is delicately incised with a floral motif and the sash is inlaid with copper.
Still in the same posture, but with his right foot resting on a lotus flower attached to the base, Milarepa holds a skull cup filled with gems. His wears a long under garment gathered around his waist under breast level, a feature that helps date the piece.
On this variant, Milarepa leans on his left hand. He wears no sash and has a plain garment softly draped in the Chinese fashion. Some long strands of hair rest on his shoulders. His ears are adorned with plugs.
