The four printed images show Avalokiteshvara and Vajrapani. This aspect of Avalokiteshvara possibly is the yellow Avalokiteshvara, also called yellow Amoghapasha, who usually sits in a half crossed-legged posture with his right leg lowered but can also take a vajra cross-legged position. With his right hand, he grants boons, pouring out a stream of ambrosia to satisfy all who are in need. With the thumb and ring finger of his left hand, he grasps the stem of a white lotus flower that blossoms beside his ear. Vajrapani, who in this form is identical with Vajrasattva, sits in meditation posture, holding a vajra and a bell.
