A brass sculpture of the founder of the Drigung Kagyu school in full monastic attire, one of his bare feet uncovered, his right hand calling Earth to witness, the other held in the meditation gesture, like the historical buddha.
Quite a different style, with gilding yet wearing patched garments.
Seated in the same pose, on a stepped lion throne with stone-inlaid visvajras at the top and on the plinth, its backplate or prabhamandala decorated with viyalas, makaras and a garuda at the top…
… a vajra sceptre placed before him on the lotus base.
This type of throne seems to have been particularly popular in Tibet during the 13th century to give prestige to famous lamas.
