The figure shows the four-armed Subrahmanya atop a circular lotus pedestal with the arms bifurcating at the shoulders. In the rear right hand he holds Goddess Sakti between the first and second fingers, the front right hand is in kataka-mudra as though holding an arrow; the rear left hand which was probably carrying the vajra is lost, and the front left hand is in the gesture of holding a bow.
