: minor abrasion, o.a. very good!
Powerful and Spirited Fudo Myoo engulfed in a flaming adora, seated firmly atop
of a large boulder over a motif of swirling waves. He is firmly holding a vajra-hilt
sword in his right, and in his left is a rope which is now missing. The figure
is cast in solid bronze, with intricate hair curls and extensive hand-chased details.
There is a viswa vajra repousse on the tightly sealed copper plate on the base,
an indication of that the statue was once consecrated in a ritual blessing.
