The one-faced and two-armed White Jambhala has the appearance of a wrathful deity with sharp teeth, three eyes and reddish hair rising upwards. Riding on a blue turquoise dragon, he holds a trident spear and a club marked with a gem. A Tibetan inscription gives his name, reading “white Jambhala” (Tib. Dzam bha la dkar po).
