These three male deities of different height still await a correct identification. They are stepping to the right (pratyali hasana) and are dressed with a tiger skin (vyaghracarma) tied below the protruding bellies. They brandish in the right uplifted either a sword (kha ga) or a staff (dan a), and hold with the left hand, displayed in the gesture of threatening (tarjani-mudra), the noose (pasa) (?), an attribute of mainly wrathful deities to catch the enemies of Buddhism.
