Kong Tsen Demo Dorje Bod Kham Kyong. She belongs to the sub set of four Menmo 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.
Kong Tsen Demo, peaceful in appearance, holds a divination arrow aloft in the right hand and a vase in the left. She rides atop a tigress. (See a block print image of the same deity).
