Large Carved Antique Tibetan Mask
A large carved vintage Tibetan protector mask with four heads surrounded by flames.
This is a fantastic large old Tibetan mask made of one piece of timber.
Often called devil masks, this mask would be worn in the traditional Tibetan cham dance. The heads and flames represent the tantric protector deities of Tibetan Buddhism. They protect the teachings and remind you of the dangers of leaving the path of the dharma.
The main image is of Yama, the Lord of Death, who is often encountered holding the Wheel of Life.
