The mahapandita (Indian monk and teacher) is seated on a throne supported by various Jambhala figures (the central one riding a lion and holding a parasol and a mongoose). He holds a book/manuscript in his left hand and does the vitarka mudra with the other. The hem of his clothes is decorated with a scroll pattern. His graceful face is enhanced by his red pandita hat with wide flaps and rounded ends. The base of the throne imitates a rocky formation.
