Sonam Tsemo is a lay figure and depicted with long sleeves covering both arms. He is sometimes depicted with long flowing straight hair similar to Dromton and at other times he is shown with short curly hair similar to his younger brother Dragpa Gyaltsen.

"Accomplished from limitless merit,
Greatly increasing omniscient wisdom,
Becoming the supreme kinsman of beings;
To Sonam Tsemo I bow." (Chogyal Pagpa).
