HandCarved Bhairav-The Protector Wooden Wall Hanging Mask


This is a beautifully handcarved wooden mask of Bhairab. The carvers from Sindupalchowk, a village about 60 miles from Kathmandu, carved this amazing mask entirely using the ancient old technique of carving which they learnt from their older generation.

Bhairab is the protector. It is said that Bhairab is the manifesation of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara. From the Heart of Arya Avalokitesvhara emerged a dark blue Hung letter, which transformed into the Instantaneous Protector of wisdom. Buddha Amitabha proclaimed thus. ''Som of the family, you shall have the strength of the wrathful Yama, Lord of death. You shall embody the great wrathful empowerment of body, speech, mind, qualities and activities of all the Buddhas throughout the three times''. Ever Since Bhairab has remained as the doctrine Protector of all the Buddha fields.
