Known as Vajrakila, Vajrakilaya or Vajra kumara in sanskrit, this extremely wrathful deity has three heads and six arms, and may have four legs or a kila-shaped lower body. On this rare example he holds a kila (ritual peg-shaped dagger) in each of his main hands, his other attributes are a nine-prong and a five-prong vajra sceptre, some flames and a trident.
Clad in a tiger skin loin cloth, wearing a human hide over his back, he crushes two victims with his four legs.
Instead of the expected half vajra finial, there is an effigy of Amitabha on his head and another on the front panel of his crown. He appears to be chewing a corpse, like Magzor Gyalmo.
The incised and stippled decoration on the plinth, throne and lotus pedestal is typical of brass works thought to have been produced in the Ngari District around the 11th century.
In embrace with his consort, Dipta Chakra, who has one head and two hands in which she holds a skull cup and a flaying knife; he holds a kila in his main hands. We will note his tiger skin loin cloth and her leopard skin garment.
On this Nepalese-style works she has a bone apron with long raining jewel pendants.
Vajrakila is one of the few entities who may have wings. (On paintings he may also have 9 heads, 18 arms, 8 legs, or 1000 heads, 1000 arms).
On this Chinese-style sculpture his consort holds a skull cup and a wheel.
