Several forms of the meditational deity (goddess) Marichi reside in a stupa structure, sometimes on a chariot and pulled by seven pigs (sows). The two most common forms found in a stupa are the three-faced with six arms and the three-faced with eight arms. These forms can either be seated or standing and are generally yellow in colour.
