Rarely seen in sculpture, Maha Pratisara is one of five female deities known as Pancha Raksha, related to early buddhist texts (sutras). She may have one head and two hands or 4 heads and 8 hands, as above. She is seated in the vajra position, adorned with a crown and princely jewellery inlaid with gems, like her striped lower garment. Her celestial scarf forms a frame around her. In her right hands she holds a wheel, an arrow, a manuscript/book, in her left hands she has a bow and a vajra sceptre – the other two attributes (probably an axe and a sling) are lost.
