Sold To Private Collection

A spectacular 19th century rendering of Hayagriva with consort. Superbly sculpted and cast in several sections with hand-chased details and cold pigment, depicting Hayagriva, a fierce form of the compassionate Avalokiteshvara, with three faces, six arms and four legs, wings and a horse head in his hair, which gives him his name “horse-necked one”, for the sound of his approach is likened to a thunderous neighing which drowns all false appearances. All three heads are crowned with skulls, above which the red hair rises against a flaming mandorla. Hayagriva wears a belt strung with freshly severed heads, a lion skin loincloth with the head attached, snake belts and bone beads, flaming swords, trident and noose; in his front left hand a skull cup filled with transformed blood and guts of sentient beings. Huge wings unfurl behind him as he clasps his consort, who is also draped in lion skin, a crown and necklace of skulls and holds the vajra and skull cup. Both figures wear bone earrings, armlets, bracelets, anklets and strands of bone beads and stand in pratyalida (aggressive) posture characteristic of wrathful deities. Beneath their feet are vanquished pretas, or ghosts, one prone and one lying on its back, representing the grasping human ego, the entire scene set atop a beaded lotus throne; highly detailed and meticulously finished.
