Seated in the vajra position, his main hands in prayer, a rosary and a lotus in his upper hands, the bodhisattva wears an ankle-length dhoti, jewellery and a thin celestial scarf that passes over his arms and rests on the sides, one of its forked ends touching the lotus base.
He has a squarish face with silver-inlaid eyes and urna and copper-inlaid lips. His eyebrows are joined together into a soft line. Long strands of matted hair fall over his shoulders. The head of a tiny antelope skin hangs over his chest to his left.
Here, the celestial scarf forms a kind of arch behind the bodhisattva.
His jewellery is inlaid with stones and glass, his eyes, lips, and the rim of his crown are inlaid with silver. Kirtimukha adorns the front panel of the crown.
On this example, the crown and jewellery are inlaid with turquoise and coral. His celestial scarf doesn’t reach the lotus base.
The creature at the front of his crown could be construed as Kirtimukha, but it has the beak of a garuda.
This dark copper alloy figure is seated on a double-lotus base with apple-like petals typical of the 13th and 14th century and often seen on West Tibetan works but not exclusively. The ends of his short celestial scarf discreetly show below his elbows. His ankle-length dhoti has a beaded hem and matching belt.
Sometimes, the earrings of the bodhisattva match the design of the lotus he holds in his left hand, as is the case above. His chignon is topped with a finial, the front panel of his crown is shaped like a flower, he wears two necklaces with foliate pendants and matching armbands and anklets.
