Rakta Yamari according to the tradition of Mahasiddha Virupa.
Four additional wrathful figures identical to Rakta Yamari, except for body colour, surround the central figure. Lineage teachers are located at the top sides and bottom of the composition along with a donor figure.
At the top center is Virupa with Dombi Heruka seated atop a tiger on the left and Shridhara seated on the right - appearing with a buffalo head.
At the bottom center is the protector deity Panjarnata Mahakala.
