Vajradhara wears a magnificent five-panel crown inlaid with turquoise and coral, matching necklaces, armbands and festooned belt, large floral earrings with a foliate pendant, no anklets. His chignon is topped with a floral finial.
Even the upper rim of the Yongle-style lotus base is inlaid with tiny turquoise and coral cabochons.
On this more sober example, the face has been painted with cold gold, the facial features and the hair with pigments. His shawl wraps his shoulders then his forearms, leaving the armbands uncovered.
Here, the extremities of his scarf are inlaid with (missing stone) and flow upwards, looking like sprouting vegetation.
Vajradhara sits on a single lotus base with flat elongated petals going upwards, a feature rarely seen before the 17th century. He wears a shawl with serpentine ends, a loosely draped dhoti with an incised hem, held in place with a heavy belt, bulky jewellery with a floral design and a matching crown.
Another buddha with ample draping and showy accessories, including a shawl with the upward flowing ends shaped like spiky foliage matched by the pointed panels of his crown, the side bows and two lots of ribbons.
