The historical buddha, calling Earth to witness and holding a begging bowl, is seated on a tall double-lotus base typical of the Zanabazar school. His diaphanous sanghati is decorated with an incised border and worn tightly around the legs, in the Mongolian fashion.
This buddha wears his outer garment loosely over both arms and with the chest bare, the soft folds gathered over his legs in the Chinese fashion. He is seated on a Zanabazar-style lotus base with the lower part narrower than usual.
The buddha of medicine holds a medicine jar with a lid in his left hand and the fruit of the arura plant in the other, his robe decorated with an incised pattern, the lower part covering part of the legs and base, the tail end arranged in a scallop shape. We have seen other examples of swallow-tail folds over the shoulder blending in with the hem across the chest and the inner edge of the forearm. The strip above the rim of the lotus base is engraved with a geometrical pattern.
A similar image, with painted facial features and a patched robe with a more elaborate incised floral pattern on the border.
Vajradhara holds a vajra sceptre and a bell in his hands crossed over his heart. The artist has given him Chinese-style accessories such as the five-leaf crown, festooned necklace and large earrings often seen on late Tibetan works but not the shawl that usually goes with them (see next photo), while the broad shoulders, the design of the lotus base and the tight fitted lower garment with a large incised border are typical of Mongolian art.
