A fine gilt copper repousse image of White Chakrasamvara in yabyum with his Sakti.

The long life deity stands in lunging pose embracing his consort, his hands clasped around her waist holding a bell and dorje. He wears a skull diadem, bone ornaments and a flayed skin, as well as garlands of severed heads and skulls. His consort brandishes a krrtikha (flayer) over his shoulder, her head thrown back in the ecstasy of the divine union.
