There is a great deal of disagreement between scholars as to what is a sculpture made by Choying Dorje and what is a sculpture alleged to have been made by Choying Dorje and which sculptures he used as examples and which sculpture are actually 9th century Kashmiri productions that were possibly later attributed and inscribed as being by Choying Dorje.
