15th century, Tibet, Vajrayogini, at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York (USA).
This powerful work depicts her as a young girl, naked, adorned with bone ornaments, brandishing a with a five-prong vajra sceptre (instead of a flaying knife) which she holds above her head, the right leg fully extended. There is a skull cup in her left hand.
Another image full of movement, with two victims on the base and a stupa at the top of the flaming arch, the deity holding a five-prong vajra sceptre and a skull cup raised above her head, a ritual staff resting against her left shoulder.
She has a youthful appearance and wears bone jewellery and apron.
This very wrathful ‘Pala-revival’ Vajrayogini stands on a single victim over a tall lotus pedestal, surrounded with flames, the arch topped with a triratna (set of three jewels), her hair gathered in a tall chignon, adorned with a skull-crown, bone jewellery and belt, a garland of severed heads.
She holds a skull cup filled with blood and a vajra sceptre. There are raining-jewel pendants on her belt, which is inlaid with gemstones. Her large earrings consist in a perforated disc with a triratna at the bottom.
