Antique Nepalese fierce deity. Good size at 10 1/4 inches tall, 7 inches wide, 3 1/8 inches deep. Significant wear suggests may be 18thC or earlier. Excellent detail still shows through the wear. Some original casting flaws on the lower legs. Extremely energetic and charismatic overall--commands attention across a room in a way that few statues its size manage to do. Has a true "tantric" feel. Looks to have had multiple consecrations. Never seen another like him. Almost seems alive. Remains of cleaning solution in crevices (appears white); can mostly be removed, but I leave it up to the next owner to decide. There is already less now than in the photos, as I have already removed some of it.
