There are very few Tibetan sculptures of this wrathful aspect of Manjushri, identified through the manuscript he holds in his left hand together with the sword held above his head. This example is adorned with a five-skull tiara, a garland of 50 severed heads, jewellery, a Chinese-style cross belt. He wears a tiger skin dhoti knotted at the front. His face has three eyes and bared fangs. His flaming hair is tied into a bunch.
This more recent work depicts him half kneeling, wearing a bone apron and a billowing scarf that forms a kind of halo behind his head, adorned with large round floral earrings and five-leaf crown, his chignon topped with a half vajra. The lasso in his hand doesn’t correspond to him but to Achala.
