"...with a body blue-black in colour, three faces, black, white and red, bared fangs and hair flowing upward. With six hands the right three hold a trident, club and sword; the left three a skullcup, lasso and hook. [He] stands with the right leg extended pressing down on enemies and hindrances, dressed in an upper cloak of black silk, wearing felt boots, a jeweled crown, gold belt, together with a necklace of human heads, adorned with various ornaments, standing in a playful manner in the middle of a blazing heap of fire."
