Summary

"Dressed in a tiger skin, he is depicted one footed (ekapada), and four-armed (caturbhuja). He carries in his upper right hand the damaru, in his upper left hand the mriga, his lower right hand is in abhaya and his lower left in varada mudra. Out of his right hip emerges the four-headed Brahma carrying in his upper right hand a stylus and in his upper left hand a book, while his lower right and left hands are respectively in abhaya and varada mudra. An angavastra is draped on his elbows. From Śiva's left hip appears Viṣṇu with the cakra in his upper right hand and the shankha in his upper left. The lower right and left hands are in abhaya and varada mudra and an angavastra is draped on his elbows. Both deities wear the usual ornaments and a yajnopavita across their chest."
