Standing on snakes, Canda Vajrapani wields a vajra in his right hand and does the tarjani mudra with the other. He wears an animal skin (tiger or leopard) round his hips, snake ornaments and a low crown. His celestial scarf forms a frame around him.
The above wears another animal skin on his back and is adorned with a festooned bone belt and a Chinese-style cross belt.
On this later work, he is adorned with a garland of severed heads and stands on two victims.
Tiger skins worn as loin cloths are often knotted around the waist with the paws of the animal dangling at the front and with the head resting over the right knee as if devouring it.
