Lord Mahakala the Protector, an important deity in Buddhism, takes many different names and forms. The powerful god manifests here in the form of an enraged red visage with a wise third eye and a traditional crown of five skulls which represent the five wisdoms. Made of real wood, the authentic mask was hand carved and painted in Nepal. It measures 6 1/2 inches tall, 6 1/2 inches wide, and 3 inches deep. A metal loop on the reverse side allows the mask to hang from a single nail or wall hook. Hang this wonderful piece in any room for a vibrant cultural accent or take it down to wear and become the manifestation of Mahakala himself. NOTE: Hanging hardware is not included. NOTE: Since each mask is crafted by hand, color and design variations are unique to each piece. Yours will vary slightly from the one pictured.
