Traditionally Hand Crafted Himalayan Mahakala Statue
The six-armed Mahakala statue has been masterfully hand-carved using a traditional Himalayan sculpting technique. The figure was molded using a copper body and gilded with 24k genuine gold over various parts of the body. The use of acrylic paint on the statue highlights the intricate design patterns as well as portraying the different meanings that it represents. A crown of five skulls rests on his head, where the skulls represent the five poisonous delusions of anger, desire, ignorance, jealousy, and pride. It took the artist almost a month to carefully carve this piece by hand, which makes it a wonderful present for a practitioner like you.

Mahakala is the guardian god of Mahayana Buddhism and all Tibetan Buddhist schools. He represents various ways, each with its features and characteristics. He is seen as the emanation of distinct beings in some circumstances, such as Avalokitesvara or Chakrasamvara. The five kleshas (adverse ailments) are transmuted into the five pearls of wisdom, and Mahakala is generally typically represented with a crown of five skulls.
