14th century circa?, Tibet, Saraha (formerly labelled ‘Shavaripa’), (gilt copper or copper alloy with stone inlay) published on HAR, item 202832.
We have seen several Densatil-style sculptures like this before, some of them attributed to the Sonam Gyaltsen atelier in the Tsang province of Tibet, including a strikingly similar one of Saraha, who usually holds a long arrow in both hands (whereas Shavaripa would hold a bow and an arrow). He wears a crown with five skulls each topped with a stone-inlaid leaf, large hoops, princely jewellery, a cross belt and a meditation strap with a stone-inlaid rice grain pattern.
