    Citipati Mask – Himalayas / Nepal

    Mask with a grimacing expression evoking Citipati skulls. Symbolizing in the Buddhist Culture of the Himalayas the impermanence of life and the eternal cycle of life and death, we find this type of mask in homes in order to protect the family circle. The Citipati represent both the eternal dance of death as well as perfect consciousness
    The object is made of wood, covered with a thin layer of crusty patina.
    We can appreciate the vestiges of a red chromia around the eyes and the mouth.
