This form of the deity represented as the central figure of the mandala painting does not follow the standard appearance for the deity Vajrakila. The subject of the painting is unusual because the first pair of hands of the central figure and for the ten principal surrounding retinue figures do not hold the typical peg 'kila' that Vajrakila is known for. However, the identification of the subject of the painting as Vajrakila is made based on all other iconographic details of the painting, mandala configuration, number of deities, and so fourth. Is there a form of Vajrakila that doesn't hold the peg 'kila'? Is this possibly a mandala of the Protection Wheel 'Raksha Chakra' of Vajrakila?
