This is the picture of Jid pai pawo. He wears the head of well crafted patterns and along with it the riinge like cloths stetched from the back side of the head with pieces of different coloured cloths stiched on it. As we can see in the image that he has got the sword at his back. Which collectively represents the undefeated heros.
