Khazi Lhazo was a prolific artist by all accounts. Depending on the number of paintings in some of the known sets it is calculated to be between 80 and 150 compositions currently known to have been created. The Ford Mahasiddha set of two currently known paintings, a set of thirteen compositions depicting the Eighty-four Mahasiddhas, a single Naropa painting from a larger set, along with a seven painting set of Dalai Lama incarnations are all related stylistically and iconographically to each other.

Related paintings sets are the Dzaya Pandita copy of the Eighty-four Mahasiddha set, along with the Prajnaparamita block print set of Mahasiddhas. Another interesting set that shows stylistic similarities to Khazi Lhazo is the Kundeling Incarnation Lineage set.
