His scarf acting as a frame, his chignon topped with a lotus finial, Vajrasattva holds an upright vajra sceptre and a bell (both missing). He is adorned with a tall crown decorated with rosettes and bows (no ribbons) – the panels secured with rods, an unusual number of necklaces, floral earrings, a sacred thread, armbands, bracelets, anklets, shin ornaments and a belt.
Here, the chignon is topped with a flaming jewel and the face is painted with cold gold and pigments (and the hair dyed with indigo or lapis lazuli powder). His long dhoti leaves no room for shin ornaments. There is a shawl across the top of his chest and back, with the ends folded over his shoulders.
This more modest work depicts him with bulky accessories and attributes, a cascade of curls falling on each side of his face, the hem of his garment incised with a geometrical pattern.
Probably made by a Nepalese artist, this masterpiece depicts him with a half vajra finial, a crown with intricate foliate and floral panels and foliate bows and ribbons, large hoops, turquoise-inlaid jewellery and belt, a sacred thread.
Another fine piece (although the gilding has been damaged) depicting him with a foliate crown with a simplified Kirtimukha design at the front and prominent side bows, the ribbons falling over the shoulders, their ends shaped like lotus buds, his dhoti knotted on the sides, the hems decorated with piping.
