Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

 

Mahakala is one of the most popular guardians in the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon.  He is the raging form of the gentle Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, the deity for infinite compassion.

 

This incense burner sits on 3 legs with 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.  It is from the early 1900’s.  Has been in my private collection since the 1980s.

 

Its condition is very good for its age.  5.5” x 6.5” x 2.5” tall on tripod.

 

For the Serious Collector.
