Dralha (Enemy God) surrounded by eight attendants.
Regal in appearance, with a moustache and goatee, the right arm is raised holding a riding crop and the left holds a lasso at the heart. Dressed in the garb of a warrior with a helmet and armor, a sword, bow and quiver of arrows hang at the waist. Seated atop a white horse, his head is ringed with a dark green areola.
Eight identical attendant figures accompany Dralha. At the top center is the wrathful bodhisattva Vajrapani, blue, with one face and two hands, standing in a heap of blazing orange fire. Various offerings and wild animals fill the green mountainous foreground.
