Facing the viewer, Vajrayogini, with a dakini appearance, holds a flaying knife at head level and a skull cup before her heart. She stands with one foot on the pedestal and the other crushing the head of a prostrate victim. She is adorned with bone jewellery, a skull crown and a garland of severed heads.

In her Naro dakini/ Sarvabuddhadakini (etc.) aspect she is portrayed sideways and usually stands on two victims. She raises the skull cup to her mouth to drink the blood from it, while the flaying knife is held down, close to her right leg.
Assuming that the shape that protrudes from her left temple is the head of a sow, we are looking at Vajravarahi, one of Vajrayogini’s forms (see the previous post).
Few sculptures show this form of Vajrayogini holding up a drum with her right hand and clutching a flaying knife in the other, against her hip. The above is adorned with a garland of flowers as well as the usual accessories.
