He is two-armed and one faced. Both arms are crossed around the waist of his consort in vajra-humkara-mudra. The vajraand ghanta in the hands symbolize that he is union of illumination and compassion, the bodhi-citta of insubstantiality and compassion, and the embrace means (upaya) and transcendental wisdom (prajna).
Both the figures are brilliantly painted. His (Chakrasamvara) double topknot has a container and a jewel on top. He wears Heruka ornaments consisting of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets; scarves and a tiger-skin skirt. Moreover, he wears a five-skull crown, and a garland of freshly severed human heads. His right leg is extended, and the left knee bent. There is a wisdom flame aureole behind the main figures.
The consort of Chakrasamvara has one face with three eyes and two arms. She is naked with disheveled hair because she has been set free from the illusions that hide the essence of things. Her right leg is wrapped around his waist and her left leg is extended along his. She holds a vajra-marked chopper in her right hand and behind his neck a skull-bowl filled with demon's blood in her left hand.
In the luminous sky Akshobhya Buddha is seated in the center. The four wrathful dakinis are depicted at each corner in orange, red, blue, and green colors, respectively. All the four dakinis hold the chopper, skull cup, and khatvanga. They are dancing on their lotus thrones.
On the left side of the middle ground, a roaring snow lion has been depicted near a cave, while on the right side a ferocious tiger is present. The tiger is depicted as if it is going to attack the innocent sheep standing before it The middle and foregrounds depict beautiful mountainous landscape, high peaks, plants, mountains covered with snow, tree, flower, lake, and natural vegetation.
