Detail Views

Fantastic and difficult to find shamanic ancestor/ kul devata (lineage tutelary deity) for the Dhami or trance mediums of West Nepal.  The figure has particularly attractive aesthetics and exhibits excellent proportion and symmetry. He has the long shamanic and divine "tupi" or top knot hanging down the back and is depicted holding spirit bells... a common accoutrement of Western Nepal's ancient folk religious traditions.
