Buddhist practitioners make offerings to a lama or a deity prior to chanting, visualizing themselves as offering gods or goddesses, placing ritual objects on an alter table such as this large Nepalese Newari gilt bronze oil lamp pitcher, which also holds consecrated water for use during rituals. The oil lamp pitcher is made of hand-forged bronze repoussé, soldered and hinged together with a cast Naga King rising to form a seven-headed snake handle, the child Krishna riding on its back, the god Vishnu seated on its shoulders flanking the rim, overlooking the back of a floral aureole of a thousand-armed ten-headed Avalokiteshvara, seated by his sides are two smaller deities on movable wings, they preside directly over the oil basin, where the elephant-headed god Ganesh is bathing near the center. The oil basin is supported by a repoussé figure of the lion-headed dakini Simhavaktra, which is hinged to the pitcher where 44 skulls are wrapped around in full circle. The pitcher is heavily decorated with various motifs, with minor imperfections but overall condition remains excellent despite its age.
