The deity Hevajra stands in the middle of the composition, slightly wrathful, blue in colour with eight faces and sixteen hands. He is surrounded by eight retinue goddesses.
Along the bottom are the three power figures known as the Three Great Red Deities (Tibetan: marpo kor sum). At the left is Takkiraja, red with one face and two hands embracing a consort. In the middle is Kurukulla with one face and four hands, standing in a dancing posture. At the right is Maha Rakta Ganapati with an elepahnt head and twelve hands, standing on a rat.
Each figure in the painting is accompanied by a written name inscription in gold lettering.
