This painting depicts the outer form of Yama Dharmaraja. Outer Yama Dharmaraja was particularly revered in Mongolia as a guardian of the Gelug order, and paintings of him were used by monks and lamas of that school as protective talismans and devotional objects. The reverse side of the painting is inscribed with a consecration mantra.
