This is a beautiful, Jewelled, small, Gilt Bronze, Wrathful Mahakala Bodhisattva, riding a Horse. With sealed consecreation plate.

This is a wonderful piece for the collector, gift, altar, or an impressive interior design statement.

I originally trained as a Sculptor then Photographer in the 1980s. In the 90s I had a successful career as a young jewellery Designer In London. I produced collections for Boules, Miss Selfridge, and the Designer outlet Jess James in Soho. With an active interest in Buddhism and Taoism since my teens, I've been collecting Buddhist and Oriental Art since 2003. I source these pieces directly from Dealers in the UK, USA, Europe, and Japan. I've been personally on buying trips to the Far East. I restore lost gems to those bronzes with empty settings, and restore wooden Japanese Antiques where pieces are lost or broken. Many of pieces end up in private collections, altars, and even Buddhist Retreats and Temples. I consider both my restorations, and my collecting, as a meditation within the Karma Yoga tradition.
