This coloured print consists of two parts. The upper part shows Zanabazar, the first Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, wearing 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 pink mat with three cushions placed on a throne structure. A curtain is hanging behind the throne and a cloth baldachin above it. A table stands to his side with implements for tantric ceremonies. A symbolic offering to the five senses is placed in front of him. The lower part shows the lion-faced dakini Simhamukha, together with the seven possessions of a chakravartin (left) and the eight auspicious substances (right). The consecration formula “Om ah hum sva ha” is written in black Tibetan letters on the back.
