Vajrabairava is one of the main gods of the Gelugpa School of Buddhism and is the wrathful manifestation of the god Manjushri, a protective diety. This god has a fierce demeanor, is blue in color, and has nine fac¬es, 32 arms, and 16 legs. While his principal face is that of a buffalo, he has a second red face and a third yellow face that most likely represent Manjushri. With his central arms he embraces his consort and holds a curved knife and skull cup. The Vajrabairava sculptures are among the most impressive in the National Museum of Mongolia’s collection of cast items. They are priceless Mongolian cultural artifacts.
