The sculpture depicts Mahakala and his consort in Yab-Yum. This is one of the rarest forms of Mahakala, scarcely found either in sculpture or in painting. The standing Mahakala closely embraces his consort, symbolizing the union of wisdom and compassion. He has one face, ten arms and two legs. The deity stands on a lotus base, and his two feet are stepping on human figures representing obstacles. His expression is ferocious with an open mouth. His hair in upswept and is adorned with a five-skull crown. The eyebrows are like small flames and there is a third eye in the middle of forehead. Apart from crown, he is adorned with earrings, necklace, bracelets etc. A tiger skin is around his loins. The deity is holding a sword (partially damaged), an arrow, a trident, a damaru, a shield, a bow, a noose, and a severed head. In his principal hands he is holding a chopper and a skull-cup. His consort has closely embraced him. She has two hands and two legs, her left leg is wrapped around his waist and her right leg is extended along his. Both the deities are naked except for adornments, meaning that there are no delusions. She also carries a skull-cup in her left hand and a vajra-chopper in her right. She has also a third eye and her expression is ferocious. She is wearing a beautiful crown, necklace, earrings, bracelets and anklets etc.

Mahakala is the wrathful manifestation of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. He is one of the main deities of Tibetan Buddhism and is considered as both a meditational and protector deity. He removes obstacles, grant power and knowledge, and fulfil wishes of his devotees. There are seventy-five forms of Mahakala, each with different origin, names and forms.
