The union of male and female (yam-yum) is prevalent in Tibetan Buddhist Tantric iconography. In this thangka painting of Vajrasattva with consort the center of the mandala is taken by a object called Vajra that Vajrasattva holds with his right hand. The Vajra, initially well-known as the sceptre of Indra, it came to assume tremendous importance in Tantric philosophy and symbolism. In Tibetan Buddhism is symbol of the indestructible nature of the ultimate truth.
