bar]ra is derived as an upapada-tatpurusa compound with the vigraha v[a.
One is allowed to get the impression that the derivation begins with speech forms already in mind, either in the form of a vigraha v[a.
The compound is not to be understood as equivalent to the vigraha vakya *kumbhasya karah and is not formed from the genitive of kumbha with the nominative of ketra, as provided for by A.
