The union of male and female (yam-yum) is prevalent in Tibetan Buddhist Tantric iconography. In this thangka painting of Vajrasattva with consort the center of the mandala is taken by a object called Vajra that Vajrasattva holds with his right hand. The Vajra, initially well-known as the sceptre of Indra, it came to assume tremendous importance in Tantric philosophy and symbolism. In Tibetan Buddhism is symbol of the indestructible nature of the ultimate truth.

Painting with decorative borders, mounted on support panel. Would have originally been in thangka format. Dark-skinned, ferocious Mahakala stands on a corpse, holding a skull cup and chopper. He is surrounded by seated Bodhisattvas and religious preceptors as well as dancing Dakinis and ferocious deities.
