UPDATE> "The Lama Wearing Trousers" Revisited: The Origin of a Remarkable Statue

Dear Colleagues, 

As many of you may remember, in 2012, the image of a statue appeared in global news sources, representing a strange mixture of a Lama in partly Western clothing and the deity Vaiśravaṇa. Made out of metorite iron and featuring a svastika on its armour, the figure appealed to imaginations of Tibet, outer space, Nazism and assumed ancientness. It thereby fulfilled various criteria for triggering modern hopes and fears, elements outlined in Umberto Eco's "Foucault's Pendulum."
