Vajrapani is an important wrathful meditation deity and one of the main protectors in Vajrayana Buddhism. He is the “Vajra Holder” and the “Lord of Secrets”.  His iconographical features including the vajra in his right hand, the snake surrounding his belly, the corpse trampling under his feet and the tiger skin wrapping around his shoulders are all vividly expressed in the sculpture.Another intricate detail of this statue is the tiger head with bulging eyes and open mouth protruded from his right armpit. The sculpture is in good condition except for a missing finger on his left hand in the expelling mudra and some minor chips on the toes and fingers. The Vajrapani is finished in one solid piece of wood.


金剛手菩薩,是金剛乘佛教的主要護法。此雕塑呈現護法一面二臂三目。右手怒拳高舉金剛杵,左手示威懾手印置胸前。背披虎皮,虎頭伸右胸旁,非常有趣少見。身戴蛇型瓔珞。左腿伸、右腿弓,呈展姿,威立於異教神上,造型生動威武,顯示其護持佛法之神力。手指和腳趾有微缺,整體品相保存難得。
