Description Vajrasattva holds the vajra (or dorje ) and ghanta (or bell ), which together represent the body, speech, and mind of the Buddha. In Tantric ritual, the vajra is held in the right hand and the bell is held in the left. The vajra represents the compassion of the Buddhas, the masculine principle, and the bell represents wisdom, the feminine principle. To achieve enlightenment, these principles must be combined. Used together in ritual, the vajra and ghanta purify the surrounding space of negative energies, and raise beneficial energy for positive work.

 Vajrasattva, the embodiment of unconditional kindness, is always portrayed with a gentle face and a luminescent countenance. His practices are all related to confession and purification, and he is the supreme remover of obstacles for Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhists.
Care

Copper statues from Nepali do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They are meant solely for indoor use. 

"If you would like the piece to shine use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the copper statue. Pay special attention to not go over any painted area of the sculpture."

If you are really interested in making the statue shine you can use some natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, and a cotton rag to wipe down the metal portions of the piece.  You can use a toothbrush as well to get into the small crevices of the statue.  Please pay special attention to not use any oil on any painted surface of the sculpture, such as the face.  This will damage the paint and possibly recolor the painted area.  Simply use a cotton cloth to dust the face if the face requires attention.  Make sure the surface that touches the face does not have any oils present on it.  If there are natural stones on the sculpture use caution while going over the stones as they can become dislodged while handling the sculpture.
