Peaceful in appearance, yellow in colour with one face and two hands, the right is extended across the knee holding a golden scepter. The left hand is placed in the lap supporting a golden wheel symbolic of the Universal Law. The hair is piled on the top of the head and adorned with a crown of gold and jewels. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets and anklets decorate while delicate orange, green and red scarves cover the body. With the legs folded together in meditation posture atop a moon disc and multi-coloured lotus blossom seat he is surrounded by a blue-red nimbus and orange aureola. A figure in similar appearance stands at the left side.
Clusters of figures each with a central peaceful deity and numerous retinue figures are arranged surrounding Kuntu Zangpo. Some are wrathful in appearance. All the figures have name inscriptions executed with fine gold lines.
