A GILT-BRONZE FIGURE OF GUHYASAMAJA IN A GILT-BRONZE SHRINE
銅鎏金密集金剛

Tibet, 16th-17th century. Guhyasamaja is seated in vajrasana, on a separately cast Buddhist lion standing foursquare on a lotus base, embracing his separately cast consort Sparshavajra seated on his lap.

Guhyasamaja also holds an arrow, a snake, as well as two vajras in his principal hands embracing his consort, a flaming mandorla with a ring of skulls and another of vajras behind them.

With a modern black glass base. (2)
