Mandala of Vajrapani in Esoteric Form. Central Tibet. 1400s.
Vajrapani, “he who holds the thunderbolt sceptre,” appears at the center of this mandala in one of his many esoteric forms. The three-faced, four-armed god holds his thunderbolt sceptre and the bell, while other hands grasp the body of a serpent—held firm between his teeth and trampled beneath his feet. His red hair is gathered like a helmet of molded flames, further adorned with a serpent. Still another delicate serpent winds about his neck.

Bon Lineage Thangka. Tagla Membar (Bon Deity). 1800s.
Tagla Membar (English: Tiger-God, Flaming with Fire) is the fierce form of a direct disciple of Tonpa Shenrab. Wrathful, red in colour, he has three large round eyes, an open snarling mouth and orange-brown hair flaming upward. He holds a golden wheel in the right hand and nine swords in the left. Adorned with a crown of five dry skulls, gold earrings, necklaces and freshly severed heads, across the shoulders he wears a green scarf and wrathful skins of animals and a human. Around the waist is a tiger skin skirt and snakes adorn the body. With the right leg bent and left straight in an aggressive posture atop two prone figures, a sun disc and multi-coloured lotus seat he stands encircled by the swirling orange flames of pristine awareness. Numerous wrathful retinue deities surround the central figure.
