This phallic representation of the god Shiva appears as a columnar head placed on a base with two rounded moldings on top of a series of square ones.  His neck is fully cylindrical and the face is modeled on that cylinder.  The eyes are wide open and a bow shaped eyebrow curves over them.  He has a flared nose and luxuriant moustache over a narrow but full lips and a short ball like chin.  A ‘U’ shaped element consisting of lines and a pearl motif probably represents his beard, perhaps held up in a tight net.  His forehead is decorated with three raise lines that go straight across and his crown is basically flat over his hear decorated with a bunch of peak forms in the center with a finial surmounting the whole.  His ears fan out almost like handles to a jar and are decorated with stylized arabesques.  A five-headed snake hood rises behind the head and has a rib down its center and scale motives incised towards the bottom an ‘S’ shapes t denote the cobra ‘eyes’ to each side.<br />

A miniature sculpture of a the Tibetan yogin Milarepa as a rotund figure, seated in lalitasana (the posture of royal ease, with one knee drawn up and the other relaxed) on an antelope skin (the head of the antelope can be discerned just under the figure's left foot, as an incised design). The right hand is raised, cusping the right ear as though to better hear, while the left elbow rests on the left knee, and the right hand holds a nettle-shell bowl. Wrapped around his torso, from his right shoulder to his left knee, is a sash (sometimes referred to as a meditation belt), which allows him to keep his body upright during long hours of meditation. The base, cast in a single piece with the figure, is decorated with beading and a single band of lotus petals.
