Each form (e.g., Caṇḍa) has a further eight sub-manifestations (e.g., Bhūmikampa), thus resulting in a total of 64 Bhairavas.

When depicting Bhūmikampa according to traditional iconographic rules (śilpaśāstra), one should depcit him (and other forms of Caṇḍa) having a blue color and good looks; he should carry agni, śakti, gadā and kuṇḍa.
