Vajrapani holds a flywhisk in his left hand and the stem of a lotus supporting a vajra in the other. He has a squarish face, a Nepalese-style rectangular urna, bodhisattva jewellery, a low crown and a celestial scarf that forms a frame behind him. His long lower garment is held in place with a belt.
This is a late Pala-style version of the bodhisattva, his tall chignon topped with a finial, his low crown adorned with large bows that stick out on the sides, dressed in a long dhoti, adorned with jewellery and a thin celestial scarf, holding his usual attributes.
Almost certainly from Western Tibet, this Kashmiri-style sculpture with silver-inlaid eyes depicts Vajrapani holding an upright vajra at heart level with his right hand and a bell against his hip with the left hand. He is adorned with princely jewellery, a thick garland of flowers typical of the Guge Kingdom and wears a richly incised dhoti, longer on one side, and a sacred cord across his chest.
