Mountain Deity, a subjugated indigenous god of Tibet, possibly the Tibetan worldly god Chingkarwa.
Semi-wrathful in appearance, white in colour with one face and two hands, he holds a stick upraised in the right and the left extended downward with the palm facing outward in a gesture of generosity. Richly attired and riding a white horse, he is surrounded by orange and red flames.
