Currently not on display

A carved wooden figure of Vajrapani. He holds a skull bowl in his left hand, which is raised to his heart and a half dorje or vajra in his raised right hand. He wears a crown of five skulls and various pieces of jewellery. He stands, his right leg bent and his left leg straight on a supine human figure. His flaming red hair still retains some pigment. The figure is flat to the back and appears to have been prised from a larger figure or structure. There are two pins to the back.
