Guru Dragpo is a wrathful form of Padmasambhava (a famous and most revered teacher also known as Guru Rinpoche). These two sculptures represent him in his simple form, i.e. with one head, and two arms, holding a thunderbolt or vajra and a scorpion, his attributes. He is adorned with a skull crown, a garland of severed heads, a lion skin on his shoulders, a tiger skin around his waist, some bracelets, anklets, a necklace, a sacred thread and a cross belt on his chest. He is standing on two human figures. His fierce-looking face has three eyes and some sharp fangs.
Here the sacred thread has become a snake, with matching anklets and bracelets.
