Fiercely wrathful, black in colour, he has one face with three round red eyes and a gapng red mouth, a yellow beard and yellow upward flowing hair. The buddha akshobhaya sits at the heart holding in the right curved knife and a blood filled white skullcup in the left. In the second pair, the right upraised holds a vajra handled sword. The left held to the side holds a katvanga staff with a trident tip. Adorned with a crown of five white skull, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and the like, the lower body is wrapped in a tiger skin skirt with the right leg pendant and the left drawn up. Atop a multi-coloured lotus blossom, he sits completely surrounded by aring of red flames – the fires of pristine awareness.
