The bodhisattva is wearing a long, Indian-style patterned dhoti secured with a belt. The crowns on his nine heads and on Mahakala’s are gilt. He holds a water pot, a wheel of dharma, a bow, a rosary.
Here Avalokiteshvara is wearing a Nepalese-style lower garment with a stone-inlaid belt. His jewellery and crowns are also richly inlaid with turquoise. Amitabha’s hair, at the top, has been painted with lapis lazuli powder and there is some red pigment on Mahakala’s lips and hair (below).
