This bronze is skillfully constructed out of several separately cast pieces allowing for a high level of complexity. Compare a smaller bronze of Vajrabhairava, with similar modelling to the faces and elephant hide spanning across the back, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, see P. Pal, Art of Tibet, 1983, cat. no. S28; and another example in the Zimmerman Family Collection, with hands similarly highlighted in dull gold achieving dramatic expressiveness, see P. Pal et. al., Art of the Himalayas, Treasures from Nepal and Tibet, 1991, cat. no. 72.
