Dorje Shugden mounted on a Black Horse. This form of Shugden follows the basic Sakya description except for the spear in the right hand and the lack of a skullcup in the left hand.
"In the middle of a whirling palace of black wind from ... is the Great King with a body red-black in colour, one face two arms. The right [hand] holds a club aloft to the sky and the left a skullcup filled with blood and a human heart. On the head a Chinese hat is placed, riding a black horse, surrounded by inconceivable emanations..." (Sakya Kangso. Dagchen Kunga Lodro, 1729-1783).
