There is a common belief in Mongolia that Zanabazar instructed his students to depict him in drawing and sculpture holding a vajra scepter and bell if the image is intended to be seen by religious practitioners. For the general population of Mongolia he instructed that he be shown cutting a leg of mutton with a knife.
