A thangka of Pehar
Distemper on cloth, Tibet, 19th century
The worldly protector Pehar is white with three faces and six hands. His right face is red and the left blue. Each face has three eyes and he wears a round gold red and gold. The first pair of hands hold a sword and stick, the second a bow and arrow and the third a vajra hook and knife, dressed in a white silk cape and tiger skin lower garment, riding a massive white snow lion with a green mane on a lotus platform within the orange flames of pristine awareness. He is surrounded by multiple warriors, dancing monks and his retinue of wrathful protectors with Heruka at the top center. Framed by narrow blue silks.
