This meditational deity, also known as Heruka (a semi-wrathful guardian of the faith) is represented in his 12-arm form. He has four heads, each with three eyes and four fangs, 2 legs, and 12 hands. Ten of them are holding various attributes such as a drum, knife, skull cup, axe, thunderbolt, bell, chopper, trident, lasso, sword, the other two hold the skin of an elephant stretched behind him like a cloak. He stands on two deities (Bhairava and Kalaratri), and his wearing a skull crown, a garland of 50 freshly severed heads, a tiger skin loincloth, and bone jewellery. For more information on the significance of each attribute see the Himalayan Art Resources website (link in left-hand column of this page) and <www.khandro.net>, amongst others.
The facial features of the characters and the lobed abdomen of Chakrasamvara are typical of Kashmiri works, along with the use of brass. The lotus base over a rocky formation supported by a plinth is quite singular.
