I'm not sure about this depiction. The three heads is similar to that found on the kila daggers and other objects that ward off evil spirits. In the center is the "Ohm" symbol.

This is a restaurant. Notice the rack of bronze prayer wheels to the left. Just below the wheels are arrows indicating the clockwise directions one should take when spinning the wheels. Spinning a payer wheel, which is engraved with a sutra, is the equivalent of reciting that sutra.
This is the very top of a Mani Pile that is about my height. Mani stones are stones inscribed or painted with small sutras/mantras. Passers by will leave a stone on the mani pile, which is the equivalent of reciting that sutra. Some piles, particularly the ones alongside roads, often grow miles in length. Piles are often wrapped in prayer flags and topped with Yak skulls, which helps the Yak's souls reach heaven.
