This beautiful antique (approximately 150 years) is decorated with semiprecious turquoise. Vajrasattva, the Bodhisattva of purification, holds Vajra (thunderbolt, symbolic of tantric male power that can remove all obstacles) and the Vajra bell (symbolic of female tantra power, compassion and emptiness).
Vajrasattva represents wisdom and purity and overcomes obstacles, including dark karma. Vajrasattva's mantra is the famous one hundred syllable mantra.
Vajrasattva sits in the lotus position and is crowned elaborately. He sits on a lotus base (one piece) and is extensively jeweled with earrings, necklaces and crown. The face is very peaceful and beautiful. Highly detailed.
