Vajravarahi is a wrathful form of
Vajrayogini; she is one of the most popular Tantric female deities. She is specially worshipped in the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddism. When Vajravarahi appears in the Yab-yum form with Chakrasamvara(father-mother), it symbolizes the merging of wisdom and compassion.
This finely detailed small statue of
Vajravarahi shows her dancing on a human corpse on top of the lotus pedestal. She has a small sow head (varahi) emerging from the right side of her head.
Vajravarahi has three eyes, one vertically
located on the forehead, between the eyebrows, also known as the eye of spiritual wisdom. She holds a chopper (karttrika) in her raised right hand, to overcome
demonic obstructions. In her left hand, she holds a skull-cup (kapala) in front of her chest. She wears a long garland of human skulls, a billowing scarf, earrings, bracelets and a five-skull crown.
The statue is consecrated and the bottom
is sealed with a gilded copper plate engraved with a double dorje within a circle. This statue is very similar to a group of central Tibetan 14-15th century larger gilded statues identified as having come from Densatil.
