Guan Yu: a Chinese General that became deified and absorbed into folk Buddhism and Taoism.
General Guan Yu sits in a stately posture with the two legs forward atop a tiger skin and traditional Chinese throne. The consort sits to the side. At the top center and right are two Gelug teachers. At the top left is Changkya Rolpai Dorje identified by the large swelling on the proper right side of his face.
Four Horsemen ride below as part of the entourage of Guan Yu.
