Mid-Century Large Brass Statute of Vajrapani, Protector of the Buddha, Tibet

About

Massive brass statue of Vajrapani. This statue is in two parts with the body completely lifting out of the brass base. The statue is exceptionally heavy with very detailed brass figuring. Vajrapani is the protector and guide of the Buddha, and rose to symbolize the Buddha's power. Vajrapani is a means of accomplishing fierce determination and symbolizes unrelenting effectiveness in the conquest of negativity. His posture is the active warrior pose. Vajrapani symbolizes the strength and energy of enlightenment, which is why he is depicted in such a forceful, active posture. In addition, he is the guardian of secrets and mysteries, the one who fights against the powers of blindness and ignorance. Serpents encircle his ankles and as a necklace around his neck. The snakes represent the power of the unconscious.
