Vajrayogini Empowerment Statue | Traditional Tibetan Dakini Handcraft

SKU: VYK1855


Traditional Tibetan Dakini Vajrayogini Empowerment Statue

We have exquisitely hand-sculpted the Vajrayogini Empowerment Statue in a traditional Himalayan style in Nepal. We have molded the figurine using the copper body. Afterward, we have hand-carved intricate design patterns with hammers and chisels. Finally, it was gilded with genuine 24K gold. The gilding with the gold gives the statue a lustrous shine. In the statue, the deity is depicted standing over corpses while holding a curved flaying knife in her right hand and a skull bowl in her left, wearing a garland of human heads around her neck. A blazing halo on the deity's back symbolizes the flames of knowledge. We have silver-plated the tantric staff, skull cup, and the necklace of human heads. This gives the statue unique attributes.

This statue has accurate traditional iconography and fine details and will be a perfect gift to a devotee like you from Nepal.

In Vajrayana practice, Vajrayogini is the most renowned female meditational deity. In this magnificent Vajrayogini statue, she holds up a vajra-handled curved flaying knife and a skull bowl. A garland of freshly severed heads hangs almost to the ankle of her left leg. The right leg is bent and brought up to her inner thigh in a dancer's pose. Vajrayogini is beautiful, the most heavenly of all women. But it is not her beauty that attracts. Rather, her promise, the potential to control the ego and its cravings, draws the practitioner. Her relative beauty is but a metaphor for that which is beautiful- the Void  State.
