Interpretation / Description


It is very difficult to date objects such as this. It is in an 18th century style but it also could be manufactured in the 19th or 20th century. It is a very good example of Vajradaka with the base charcoal bowl intact. Most examples of Vajradaka on the HAR website have lost their base.
