Half man-half eagle, with two horns, the garuda is the enemy of the nagas (snakes) which he devours. In Tibet this creature is called khyung.
Kirtimukha represents greed, this is why he just has a face (with vegetation coming out of his mouth) and two hands. In Nepal he is known as Chepu while in Tibet he is called Zeepata. (He reminds us of the Green Man seen in Gothic cathedrals but the latter symbolises the spirit of the woods). In Tibet and Nepal deities sometimes have an effigy of Kirtimukha on the front panel of their crown, or a design derived from it.
Makaras are dragon-like creatures with horns, two fangs, a short elephant trunk, the body of a crocodile. Their head is often represented on Tibetan teapots (as the spout) and on top of buildings in the same way as gargoyles.
This snake deity has a ‘naga hood’ over its head. Although the origin is uncertain, this sculpture resembles Tibetan naga kings of the same period.
