Attributes of Pehar and his four companions in a
Description

Attributes of Pehar and his four companions, Sakra, Monbuptra, Shingjachen and Dralha, in a Tibetan "rgyan tshogs" banner. At the top of the banner are flayed hides and suspended viscera, along with the six skull bowls holding the six sacramental substances, and outside these are the outfits of the tantric practitioner and warrior, suggestive of Pehar's retainers. The banner shows Pehar as the 'king of buddha-activities', represented by the ritual dagger surmounted by a wide-brimmed rattan hat in the centre of the main picture.
