A vigorously carved statue in boxwood, dense and richly colored, depicting Hayagriva, a wrathful manifestation of Avalokiteshvara, whose special ability is curing diseases, especially those said to be caused by the Nagas. When invoked, he announces his coming with thunderous neighing, the sound of which shatters all false appearances of substantiality, revealing the shining reality of freedom. He is depicted with a scowling face with glaring eyes and a roaring mouth, dressed in warrior’s attire, his left hand grasping a snake, symbolizing his power over the nagas. His right hand is held up with the snake’s tail in his fingers. He is seated on rocks, having subdued two demons who struggle to escape. His terrific aspect expresses fierce determination to overcome inner ego-addictions and outer obstructions.
