The fierce six-armed dark blue Yamari engaged in union with his six-armed Svabha Prajna astride a bull representing Yama, the Lord of Death, surrounded by red, green, white and yellow emanations within vajra shrines, and other emanations against multi-coloured scrollwork fields with white kapalas at each corner, the palace gates guarded by further forms of the deity, all contained within a ring of fire and lotus petals, Indian adepts in the upper quadrants and Tibetan Sakya monks in the lower, all set against a deep blue scrollwork field, a bodhisattva above with Indian monks in lively debate, and Sakya monks with red Amitabha below, an invocation to Yamari inscribed beneath, and the painting supported with blue silk fishtail mounts, with original red painted wood roller and veils.
