As a unique feature, the base incorporates an added leaf frieze. While this is likely based on Tibetan prototypes, it is rare in that context as well; compare to a fourteenth century bronze of a Dakini from the Lingero Collection, cf. J. van Goidsenhoven, Art Lamaique, Art des Dieux, 1970, p. 117. The right hand resting on the base with elegantly articulated fingers is equally notable.
