 This figurine represents Raja Kaputren, or the female consorts in the court of the Majapahit Kingdom. The figure is depicted standing on a lotus pedestal which, in Hindu-Buddhist philosophy, generally is considered a sign of celestial origin. the divine nature of this Raja Kaputren can also be recognized by the fact that it has four arms; the lower arms are placed with both hands in the Dhyāna Mudrā (a bodily posture symbolic for meditation), while the two upper arms hold in each hand ritual paraphernalia, namely a vajraand a drum.

Thus, Raja Kaputren are the king’s female consorts who acquired spiritual powers through the countless meritorious and selfless deeds they performed during their lifetime as a faithful servant of their lord and master. Hence, worshiping a Raja Kaputren is believed to create the right conditions for receiving the heavenly services provided by these supernatural beings.
