On the thangka, Amitayus with a red body color can be seen in a representation according to the iconographic rules. Her tiara and bun are a little different than usual. The upper part of the border is tobacco brown, patterned silk, with a fringed ribbon with Chinese inscriptions, and dark ribbons on both sides. It also has a dust curtain. When entering the object, its bars are missing. Both the painting and the border have been restaurated.
