Appearance: Lay Person
Padampa Sanggye (died 1117?). The figure is tentatively identified as Padampa Sanggye based on the small coiled knots of hair. Comparable figures of yogis with similar hair are found with examples HAR 30817, 68480 and a painting 59965. Padampa Sanggye is also depicted in both painting and sculpture with typical mahasiddha style long hair as well as tight coils of hair similar to Shaiva yogis and their matted locks.
The figure is not definitively identified although a good argument can be made that it is Padampa Sanggye based on similar characteristics found in both sculpture and painting.
