The mahasiddha is seated on an antelope skin over a single-lotus base with fat petals and thick beading, his right hand doing the vitarka mudra, the other open to hold a (missing) arrow. He wears a floral tiara, a Chinese-style celestial scarf that swirls around his arms, a cross-belt with a flower, some jewellery and a short dhoti knotted around his waist. He has a small moustache and a low beard, his eyebrows meet almost horizontally, his face is painted with cold gold.
Somewhat older and with more facial hair, Saraha wears a five-skull crown and his chignon is topped with a skull ornament.
His celestial scarf acts as an arch behind him. He wears a loin cloth, a Chinese-style cross-belt, beaded (bone) jewellery…
… a skull crown with side bows and flowing ribbons, some beading over his forehead, a jewel on top of his chignon.
On this more modern work we can see the arrow in his hands.
