Painting. The Yidam, Sangdui, with sakti, surrounded by twenty emanations of him (?) and ten Heruka demons. Above: Lamas, more yidam figures, a Tibetan king. Below: Kubera with shakti, and fifteen Hindu gods (Vishnu on garuda, Shiva on Nandi, Indra on Airavati, Varuna on Snake, Agni on goat, Nirruti on man, Vayu on deer, Ganesa on rat, Brahma on bird. Surya in wagon with lotuses at shoulders), Durga on lion, etc. Extremely interesting iconographically, especially as some of the unusual figures are duly labelled and could eventually be deciphered.
