Hevajra is represented here with eight heads, each with three eyes and adorned with a skull crown, 16 arms, two of them embracing his consort Nairâtmya, who wears a bone apron and holds a skull cup and chopper, the others holding skull cups which contain animals or hindu deities, and four legs, two of which are trampling maras or demons. They both have a long garland of freshly severed heads. The use of gilding and stone inlay added to the graceful body movements show an influence from Newar artists from the Kathmandu Valley.
The absence of gilding, the use of cold gold on the face and lapis lazuli powder in the hair, the body proportions and the facial features are proper to Tibet.
On paintings, Hevajra has flaming hair and a double thunderbolt or visvajra on top of his head, as can be appreciated on this sculpture.
