Glass statue of Buddha Vajrasattva, sitting on a double lotus throne, wearing formal attire and a diadem. A very unusual feature is that Vajrasattva is shown here holding only one vajra in both hands and another vajra is protruding from the top of his head. The statue style is inspired from Tibetan, or Sino-Tibetan, aesthetics. China, Qing Dynasty, 18th century maybe earlier. Height: 14.6 cm. Remains of soil encrustations, otherwise very good condition. NOTE: Vajrasattva is an "Adi Buddha", or primordial Buddha, sometimes associated with Vairocana. He is particularly worshipped in China and Tibet.
