Large Antique Camphor Wood Tibetan Mahakala Deity. Shrine. Tibet

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

This is an excellent representation of a 6-armed Mahakala, one of Hindu deities that is found in the Buddhist Pantheon.  Carved in fragrant camphor wood, this “Defender of Law” has always had a prominent position at the entrance doors of Buddhist Shrines.

This came from an Ontario Canada medical doctor’s private collection of Tibetan artifacts.  This carving dates back to the 1930s.  There is an aging crack that runs up from the base.   There are still  traces of paint and gold gilt.

For the Serious Collector.
