In this thangka the deity Kalachakra is shown in union with his consort Vishvamata, the mother of all beings.

Kalachakra has four heads, with three eyes in each head. He has twenty-four arms and each hand holds a different symbol. His two main arms are crossed around the waist of his consort, holding a vajra (thunderbolt) and ghanta (bell) respectively.

Numerous animal skins adorn him and underneath his outstretched right leg is Kamadeva (desire-realm god) with one face and four arms. Under his bent left leg is White Rudra with four arms. Gama, the consort of Kamadeva is holding Vishvatma's outstretched heel, and Uma, the consort of White Rudra, is holding Vishvatma's bent heel.

This awesome composition belongs to the category of black thangkas, a style which gained maturity in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. These are a special form of painting with its dark cosmic space emanating figures that seem to glow with ephemeral brilliance.It is especially used in delineation of significant wrathful deities like Kalachakra here. In this style, line drawing is of the essence, and also the brilliance of the few colors used, such as gold and mauve in this artwork.

Densely packed with stylized scrolls (representing the fire of wisdom) and decorated with ornamental foliage, this skilfully painted artwork is a masterly tribute to a unique and original aspect of Tibetan aesthetics.
