In his 12-arm form, Chakrasamvara may have one or four heads and be depicted alone or with his consort, Vajrayogini. He always has two legs, standing on Kalaratri and Bhairava who represent ego and ignorance.
His top hands hold the hide of an elephant stretched across his back.
His other hands hold various attributes. These may differ from but normally include a thunderbolt sceptre and a bell, which he has in his main hands crossed over Vajrayogini’s back when depicted with her.
The above holds a wheel on a lotus instead of a thunderbolt sceptre. The other attributes usually are a drum, a flaying knife, an axe and a trident in his other right hands; a hook, a staff, a skull cup, a noose, and Brahma’s head with four faces in the remaining left hands.
Following the tradition, she wears a garland of skulls and he wears a garland of freshly severed human heads.
