Nyima Ozer, Pema Jungne (English: Rays of the Sun, Lotus Born): from the set of Eight Manifestations of Padmasambhava.
In the austere appearance of a mahasiddha he is orange in colour with long black hair, some tied as a topknot. The right hand holds upright a katvanga staff and the left placed across the knee performs a mudra with the index finger extended - holding a lasso. Adorned with a skull crown, bone earrings, necklace, bracelets and the like he wears a green scarf, and a skirt of tiger skin; seated on a moon disc and multi-coloured lotus blossom seat.
At the the top are three Sakya lamas. At the bottom left is the goddess of power, Kurukulle. At the right is Maharakta Ganapati with an elephant head.
