stone carving, well preserved Lokapala, Vairocana Golden Guardian Ha. The stone
surface mottled and encrusted with mineral deposits. The carving is broad with
exaggerated characterization of the demon-repelling protector, seen in an aggressive
display of physical strength. He stands firmly, the tendons of his feet like roots
reaching down into the earth, the toes gripping the firmament. With a grimace
of fierce effort he tenses his entire body; the muscles of his torso, back and
arms standing out like iron cords.
