Tibetan Double Vajra in Gilt Bronze and Turquoise


An unusual double vajra — a representation of both the diamond (indestructibility) and thunderbolt (heavenly power) — covered in gilt bronze, turquoise and carnelian. The two vajras are united by a sphere (the world) and lotuses. The work is in pristine condition and comes with a stand.

Dimensions: 20 x 8 x 8 in.
