Hand Carved Wood Mask of Mahakala - The Dharma Protector

Posted on January 29 2018

Mahakala is fierce and powerful who defends the Dharma from corruption and degeneration and from forces hostile to it. Mahakala is a manifestation of the awakened mind. He is adorned a crown of five skulls. The skull represents the transmutation of the five negative afflictions of human nature into positive virtues. His face possesses a typical wrathful expression, an intense anger. The mouth is contorted to an angry smile from its corners protrude long fangs. The protruding, bloodshot eyes have an angry and staring expression and a third eye is visible in the middle of the forehead.
