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 pink mat with five 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.
