Vajradakini, her name can be literally translated into Thunderbolt Skywalker or Diamond Skywalker. She is one of the three female form of Buddha archetypes popular particularly in Tibetan Buddhism.

Vajradakini and or Vajrayogini are embodiments of celestial females who possess Buddhist wisdom as her male counterpart symbolizes compassion. She is instrumental in spiritual enlightenment for many Tantric Buddhist Practitioners. Her prominent position in Buddhism indicates that enlightenment is indeed beyond sexual identity. Vajradakini is particularly venerated in Vajrayana Buddhism.

Dancing in Ardhaparyankasana ( Ardhaparyanka ), the naked three eyed terrific deity Vajradakini is ornamented with bell-tasseled strands of jewels. With only one foot on the ground, swaying strands of ornaments and delicately curved flowing sash, her angular and protruding posture sets her in motion in the cosmic dance.

The face of Vajradakini is stunningly beautiful. She is realized with bared teeth and intense stare. Her victorious grin illustrates a vigorous spirit and a terrific force in which she tames the egotism in men. In her left hand, she holds a skull bowl full of blood from which she transforms hatred into compassion. Her extended right arm held high may have once held a vajra chopper.

The Vajradakini depicted here is wild and free in spirit. She is vividly characterized in the elegant naturalism of Tibetan Buddhist art culture. The fact that this rare gilt wood sculpture remains largely unchanged from the original prototype in the 14–15 century. We believe that she is a Tibeto Chinese carving considerably over 150 years in age.
