Padmasambhava sculpture is a fine clay sculpture found in the Namchi Monastery
, in South Sikkim District
. In the figure, Padmasambhava is shown as sitting on a lotus with his legs locked, with a begging bowl on his lap. He holds a khatvanga, his special symbol, in his left arm and the vajra (thunderbolt) in his right hand.
The sculpture stands out in its exquisite artistry; it has been so painted that the color composition gives a philosophical meaning to the image.
