The Lokapalas are royal guardians of the four directions, protectors of the dharma in their concentrated purity and power. Each commands a legion of supernatural creatures and is traditionally placed as anchor points at the entrance of Buddhist temples. This antique white marble statue is attributed to the 14th-century Ming period. It depicts Virudhaka, the Guardian King of the South, the ruler of all Kumphanda and Pretas. Virudhaka’s color is blue. His attribute is a sword held in his right hand. He is richly garbed in the brocade raiment of a warrior, sitting in royal ease with his right knee above a Pretas. Like the other Guardian Kings, Vaishravana, Virupaksha, and Dritarashtra, Virudhaka swore an oath of protection before the Buddha Shakyamuni. This statue, which conveys the dignity of time and the vitality of the deity, would have been found at the entrance of temples, an object of ongoing adoration and notice over the last 500-600 years. The boulder weighs nearly 80 pounds and is in well-worn, aged condition.
