Old Bronze Incense Burner / Censer, Tibet

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Detail: This appears to be the head of Bhurkumkuta – a wrathful form of Vajrapani. It has a strong Nepalese influence. Sits on 3 legs and incense smoke comes from the mouth. Intricate scrollwork and stone settings on the crown, eyes and forehead. This piece was part of a private collection in New York City for two generations. I would say it is early- to mid-1900’s in age. Has been in my private collection for 10 years.
