Kalachakra is depicted in sexual union (yab-yum) with his consort, Vishvamata, the mother of all beings.
Vajrapani wears a tiger skin wrapped around his waist symbolizing
fearlessness and virility. When you look at the back of the statue you
can see the head of the tiger. His hands display the threatening mudra;
he holds a vajra in his right hand (symbolizing the power of
compassion) and a rope in his left with which he binds demons and
delusion. He is adorned with a garland of snakes, the embodiment of
anger, which he transforms with the force of his great compassion. He
has a third eye of wisdom in the center of his forehead. He stands
against a background of flames. Vajrapani wears a crown of five skulls
symbolizing his mastery of the five wisdoms of the Buddha. There is
also a vajra embedded on his topknot symbolizing his affiliation with
the Vajrayana lineage.
This lost wax method copper sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand cast by the very talented artists of the beautiful country of Nepal. Every piece is truly unique!
