Hevajra with four legs can generally appear in two different types of standing posture. The first and more common of the forms stands with a right leg and a left leg down and with the second right and left leg raised in a dancing posture. The second stance found in art is with the two right legs standing, pressed to the ground, and the two left legs raised in a dancing posture.
