Good condition with significant wear marks in the axes

Related to the category of ghurras called "phallic" (in reality: dualism masculine/feminine; the hole of passage of the baratton showing well an allegory of the feminine sex!!) This important, heavy and dense, hard wood Ghurra has a very beautiful glossy patina - natural glossy, strewn with lactose glazed traces!! Likely ethnic Tamang rather than Newar (the portrayal of the character is more referable in this ethnic group (close)). The front face shows a rare totemic portrayal; Nepal, middle valleys of the centre; circa 1900. (minimum)

Measurements: total length: 32.5 cm
Maximum width: 9.8 cm
Thickness: 3 cm; total weight: 342 g
