He is seated in the perfect padmasana, heels gathered together directly below the navel, the knees and ischial tuberosity tripod set firmly on the ground beneath oneself. Note how the vibrant gold of the tigerskin loincloth contrasts sharply against His ashen blue complexion. With six of His eight hands - ashtabhujadhari or eight-armed Deva - He holds pots of nectar that He pours over Himself and the most ardent of His devotees. The same high-precision brushstrokes of His dark kesha (locks) have gone into the snakes that raise their hoods about His body. The lotus beneath His asana (mat), as well as the infusion of multiple shades and tints of blue in the background, add to the tranquil aura of Lord Maharityunjaya.
