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.

For the Serious Collector.
