Mahakala Head by Mukti Singh Thapa

This thangka painting by master artist Mukti Singh Thapa is of Mahakala, the Protector of the Dharma. Mahakala is considered to be the fierce and powerful emanation of Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. He defends the Dharma from hostile forces and protects the individual practitioner from deception and delusion, bestowing power to overcome life's struggles. This stunning piece displays Thapa's mastery of the 13th - 16th century Newar Design style through its rich color palette and use of traditional iconography, while also boasting an almost 'pop art' quality.
