Amitabha is shown richly clad. His hair is painted blue and falls on either side of his shoulders. He has elongated earlobes like the Shakyamuni Buddha.
In the lower part of the painting can be seen the three-faced Ushnishavijaya at the right and to the left can be seen the White Tara. The presence of these two deities in this artwork is very significant since along with Amitabha, Ushnishavijaya and the White Tara form the triad of longevity deities in canonical Buddhist iconography.
