Vajrasattva is a major deity in Mahayana Buddhism. His attributes are the Vajra and the bell. The gestures and forms of this art work from the pre-Angkorian period from the 7th to 8th centuries suggest this statue is important evidence that confirms the presence of Mahayana Buddhism, and the Vajrayana sect, both of which had been practised since pre-Angkorian times, continued to flourish during the reign of Jayavarman VII, from the late 12th into the early 13th centuries.
