This elderly lama with a smiling face has silver-inlaid eyes and copper-inlaid lips. He wears monastic garments, one arm uncovered. His legs are wrapped in a meditation cloak, one edge held tightly in his right hand, the other resting gently on his lap.
The soft fabric, gathered at the top, is neatly arranged around him and covers the top of the cushion completely.
This is a less personal portrait, depicting a lama doing the vitarka and dhyana mudras, wrapped like the previous one and seated on a deer skin over a double cushion.
Unlike the other one, he has long hair combed at the back.
On this standard portrait, the lama has impersonal facial features. He does the teaching/discussion and the meditation gestures. His meditation cloak is over his shoulders. The lower part is tucked under him. The cushions is obviously modern but it reminds the viewer that similar sculptures were originally placed on a cushion.
This lama, with similarly pleated and folded garments, is doing the dharmacakra mudra (turning the wheel of dharma). The edge of his clothes is decorated with a finely incised.
