Vajrapani stands on a single-lotus base with with incised petals, holding a vajra in his right hand at head level, his left index raised in tarjani mudra. He wears a tiger skin loin cloth and is adorned with snakes, large round earrings and a low tiara, no skull crown or garland of severed heads.
According to the tradition, he is adorned with 8 snakes (nagas). The above has one around his waist.
He sometimes wears one to fasten his hair.
This is a slightly different Vajrapani, with a leopard skin loin cloth held in place with a belt, the ends of which drop to the base in a zig-zag shape that matches the ends of his scarf. There is an effigy of a buddha in his headdress.
