Vajrapani stands on snakes over a single-lotus base, wielding a vajra in his right hand and raising the index finger of his other hand (tarjani mudra), a tiger skin wrapped around his hips, the head of the animal resting over his right knee, adorned with snakes, a skull crown, an effigy of a buddha in his headdress.
This unusual sculpture includes a garuda devouring snakes below him. Vajrapani’s head is topped with a half vajra.
His face is painted with cold gold, his floral necklace is made of copper and inlaid with turquoise, like his armbands.
We see him here with vajra and ghanta (diamond thunderbolt and bell), adorned with a skull crown, large hoops, snakes and a large geometrical necklace, wearing a short tiger skin dhoti.
On this other version, he holds his left hand in the karana mudra. He is adorned with a skull crown, floral jewellery, snakes and a discreet scarf.
