Another beautiful old shaman phurba with classic shamanic styling.  The phurba deity faces on this one have the haunting expression and presence of some of the himalayan masks.  The grip is rendered in gorgeous curvilinear patterns that have taken on the softened edges and deep patina that we find in the finer examples of this genre.  The tripartite blade has intertwined Naga descending from the mouth of the makara or garuda.  The back side of the blade shows Naga intertwined around a shamanic trisul (trident).
