Akshobhya holds a vajra sceptre horizontally in his right hand and a bowl in the other, held in the meditation gesture but with the thumb and middle finger raised to hold the recipient. His patched monastic robe is richly incised and studded with turquoise.
This one holds an upright vajra sceptre in his left hand. There are two small elephants on the lower part of the base. His body and face are painted with cold gold. The robe covers both shoulders and is gathered loosely over his feet.
His right hand always does the ‘calling Earth to witness’ gesture, with the middle finger usually touching the top of the lotus base.
