Serchen Khading Dorje Lumo Gyal. She belongs to the sub set of four 'nujin' (yaksha) class goddesses within the group of the Twelve Goddesses of Tibet (Tanma Chu Nyi). This sculpture belongs to a set of twelve which most likely were retinue figures accompanying a larger sculpture of Shri Devi Magzor Gyalmo along with her two attendants and four close retinue figures - the Goddesses of the Four Seasons.
Dorje Lumo Gyal, peaceful in appearance, holds a skullcup and a lasso. She rides atop a horse. (See a block print image of the same deity).
