Yam Yum Fresco, Stongde Gompa | Zanskar |

Yab yum paintings like these, which show a Bodhisattva or Protector Deity embracing their consort, are a feature of Vajrayana or Tantric Buddhism. They symbolize the unity of different forces. This painting is in a chapel of protector deities at Stongde Monastery in the Zanskar valley.

Vajras, or diamond thunderbolts, can be seen held in the front hands.

This painting is in a room housing protector deities in glass cases. The paintings which form the backdrop along the whole wall, are very dramatic with fine gold or red lines against a black background.

Landscape format.
