Shri Devi, of Hindu origin, refers to various female entities in their wrathful form, including the four-handed Palden Lhamo, Patron of Lhasa and protectress of Tibet, and the two-handed Magzor Gyalmo.
A wrathful form of Sarasvati, Magzor Gyalmo has a blue body, one head with three eyes, two hands, in which she holds a skull cup and a sandalwood staff (missing here), a sun disc over her navel and a crescent moon in her flaming hair, and she chews a body. Like Palden Lhamo, she rides a mule or a kiang sideways, using the hide of hear dead son as a saddle, across a sea of blood and is adorned with a skull crown, garland of severed heads, bone jewellery…
and may have five magical weapons including a tally stick incised with a geometrical pattern fastened or tucked into her belt.
The crescent moon in her headdress is sometimes topped with a triple gem.
Apart from the tally stick, her magical weapons are a pair of divination dice, a bundle of red curses, a bag of disease, a ball of variegated thread, suspended from poisonous serpents that adorn the saddle of her mule.
