Very good with nice patina; face rubbed off from devotional puja-use
A four-armed Virabadhra with the typical high shoes
To find a Virabadhra statue is quite rare; more common are the square plates
Around his hips a garland of sculls, around the neck on a long thread a linga-container
Virabadhra came into being after Dakhsa insulted Shivas wife, who subsequently commited suicide; Shiva created him as a form of himself and gave him an army to take revenge upon Dakhsa
Virabadhra cut off the head of Dakhsaa in the battle.
The other gods persuaded Shiva to bring him back to life. But Dakhsas head could not be found and so it was substituted with the head of a ram.
