Dharmapalas (Lokapalas) are warrior guardians of Buddhist temples. They were introduced to China in the mid-seventh century by a Cingalese Buddhist monk Pu Kung. Soon became popular temple guardians and protectors from attacks of evil spirits. As shown here. This is a horrific yet delightful belt buckle between worlds. Central is three large bulging eyes, opened jaws in a menacing expressions. The provocative character is fused with broad strokes and definitive cuts, rounded edges and smooth touch in a tactile nephrite jade of celadon green with a semi-translucent hue. Despite the apparent simplicity, a few minor scratches and a chipped tooth, this rare Dharmapala buckle is gleaming with a buoyant and powerful presence.
