Description

Well-cast in good Bronze and well fire-Gilt in the old manner, this is an image of Yamantaka, the conqueror of Yama (the God of Death and the Underworld). He sits on top of his steed and is celebrating his Victory with both hands in the Mudra of Protection or Giving Refuge. An emanation of Manjusri (Manjusree) who is the God of Wisdom, he used this power to defeat Yama. This sculpture has both his back hair and ear and the mane of his mount painted Red in the Tibetan manner, some of it darkened by the oils of touching fingers. A consecrated Relic is hidden in the "underside", and it is 18th-19thC., 3-1/4" tall by 2-3/4" long, and perfect.
