Wrathful Heruka (Tibetan: trag tung): dark red in colour, with three faces and 6 hands, embracing a consort, surrounded by a host of animal headed retinue figures. Five similar Heruka deities stand to the sides and above. At the very top center is the primordial buddha Samantabhadra. The 'Genderless' Mahakala stands at the bottom center along with various protectors such as Rahula with nine heads and Dorje Legpa riding a white snow lion.
