Only the hairstyle differentiates this lay tantric practitioner from monastic ones. On paintings his robe would be white.
Her face is painted with cold gold and pigments.
The way this female character is leaning on one knee, the other slightly raised, with her hands held before her, indicates that she is a devotee. She is adorned with a small tiara, necklaces, armbands, bracelets, anklets and a belt over her short lower garment.
This yogi holds a lotus bud in his right hand and another object in his left hand. The body proportions and the roundness and softness of the shapes, along with the use of ungilt copper alloy, are typical of early Tibetan works.
This ascetic character with realistic features wears a short loincloth and a small skull at the front of his head. He holds a horn in his left hand, similar to those used in Tibet to keep medicinal herbs. He sits on an antelope skin, on a single-lotus base with thin petals going downwards.
His body has been painted with cold gold, partly worn off. The high degree of craftsmanship is particularly noticeable in the way his matted locks of hair are depicted and in the care taken with the pedestal.
