Item Details
Description
Chinese Tibetan Qing Dynasty gilt bronze and stones inlaid Buddha Adept figure of Virupa, Yogeshwara, Ugly One, Lord of Yoga. Seated upon a deer-skin and raised on an intricate lotus crown pedestal. With a body corpulent and thick limbed, his face looks upward with large glaring eyes, the black pupils surrounded by white circles. The right hand is raised to the sky in a wrathful gesture with the index finger pointed in an accusatory manner, the palm red and marked with a golden Dharma wheel. Behind, the left hand placed on the moon disc seat supports the gently leaning torso. The crown of the head is adorned with various flowers and ribbons. Large circular bone earrings decorate the ears along with gold and jewel necklaces, bracelets and anklets. A loincloth is worn about the waist. In a relaxed posture with the legs loosely crossed, the soles of the feet marked with Dharma wheels, he sits atop a deerskin, moon disc and lotus blossom.
The facial features and flowing hair are painted in a colorful fashion with his entire body adorned with ornamentations. Extensive trace of gilt remain on face, with hints of blue pigments on hair.
