This stele depicts Mahakala in his four-hand form, holding a sword, a staff topped with a trident, a skull cup and a flower, a flaying knife. He stands on a double-lotus flanked by a kneeling monk and a lotus bud, surrounded with flames, his hair fastened with a snake and forming a mitre-like shape, adorned with a low tiara, large earrings, a necklace, a snake as a sacred cord, a garland of severed heads, bracelets, wearing a long striped dhoti held in place with a festooned belt. He has three bulging eyes, a thin moustache and a beard, a big belly and short legs.
Such images normally show him seated. The above has a leg pendant, his foot resting on a lotus attached to the base, holding a sword, a trident, a skull cup, and probably a flaying knife in the missing hand.
