A classic representation of the Indian teacher, seated in the vajra position and holding a vajra sceptre pointing to his heart and a skull cup, his lotus hat decorated with a sun-and-moon symbol at the front and topped with a vulture feather, dressed in kingly attire.
On this curious image he has the wide gaze of a yogi. The sides of his hat are unfolded, the vajra sceptre is held diagonally and there is another, larger one before him on the lotus base. He appears to have a sleeveless garment on top of a long-sleeve one, a cloak and a necklace over it.
With his consorts, Mandarava, who holds a pot with a lid, and Yeshe Tsogyal, who holds a skull cup.
A late tree-like arrangement with Padmasambhava at the centre and his eight emanations around him. Sengge Dradog, wielding a vajra sceptre and doing a threatening gesture at heart level and Dorje Drolo wielding a vajra sceptre and holding a kila peg downwards, his tiger mount missing, are at the foot of the lotus throne. Above them, Nyima Oser with a mahasiddha appearance, wearing a scarf and a skull crown and holding a lasso and a ritual staff (vice-versa in this case) and Sakya Sengge, with a buddha appearance and holding an alms bowl in his left hand and a vajra sceptre in the other. Further above, the image is too blurred to distinguish with certainty Pema Gyalpo, who wears kingly attire and holds a drum in his right hand and a mirror plus a bowl in the other from Loden Chogse, also in kingly attire and holding a drum in his right hand and a mirror or a skull cup in the other; at the top, Orgyen Dorje Chang in embrace with his consort, and Pema Jungne wearing a pandita hat and doing the gesture of debate with his right hand, supporting a bowl with the other.
Dressed like a buddha, part of his chest and his left arm bare, and adorned with floral earrings and a necklace.
