Zanabazar, the first Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, wears the threefold robe of an fully ordained monk. On most of the images, he does not wear a headgear, revealing his bald head. In his right hand, he holds a vajra, displaying with his fingers the vajra gesture or the threatening gesture, and, in his left, he grasps a bell – both attributes of his tantric accomplishment. He sits on a mat placed on a throne structure that is supported by two lions. He is accompanied by Buddha Shakyamuni and Amitayus depicted above him.
