Manjushri is seated in the vajra position on a couple of mythical creatures, brandishing his sword and holding a manuscript at heart level with his main hands. The other hands hold a bow and an arrow. He is adorned with a five-leaf crown, jewellery and a celestial scarf. His hair is topped with a lotus bud finial.
