Mahakala (English: the Great Black One) with one face and two hands folded at the heart holding a curved knife and skullcup, fearsome in apperance, in a standing posture. Fourteen similar forms of Mahakala descend at the right and left sides. Along the top are the five Celestial Buddhas. Above the donor figures along the bottom are three meditational deities, Ganapati, Achala and a red figure with one face and two hands, peaceful in appearance.
