  • 克什米爾 十/十一世紀 軍荼利明王銅像

    Vighnantaka is one of the 'Ten Wrathful Ones' whose name literally means 'The Destroyer of Obstacles'. He balances above a subordinate Ganapati, who serves the same function in Hinduism, but as tantric Buddhism asserted itself, became a symbol for those very obstacles that Vighnantaka subjugates. Another Kashmir example of the deity is published in von Schroeder, Buddhist Sculptures in Tibet, Vol. I, Hong Kong, 2003, pp.202-3, no.63. Meanwhile, compare the stylistic features of the base and mandorla with a Kashmir figure of Sugastisandarshana Lokeshvara published in von Schroeder, Indo-Tibetan Bronzes, Hong Kong, 1981, p.126, no.20A.
