The now fragmentary inscription records that in samvat 975 (1855) this image of the tutelary deity Shri Hevajra Nairatma was made by Kayista Jivanara(yana?).
The painted borders of the paubha imitate the contemporaneous Tibetan fashion of framing thankas with “rainbow” mounts of patterned silk, usually bands of red, yellow and blue Chinese brocade. A silk panel of different colour or design, the “door” into the painting, is often inset in the lower outer border of the thanka frame, indicated in this paubha by the fancifully painted four-clawed golden dragon.
