A beautiful Bhutanese mask handmade in Bhutan similar to the one used for the religious mask dances. The mask is made out of light wood which is carefully crafted as per the Buddhists’ philosophies. The mask comes in different sizes and colors signifying different symbols in the Vajrayāna tradition of Buddhism.
In Bhutan, the “Tsholing” masks are used during Bhutan’s festivals for the religious mask dances. The masks represent saints and sages, male and female protective deities, and legendary personages. This particular mask represents Mahakala. He is the protector of the Dharma and is meant to frighten bad spirits away and to keep away negative energy, thoughts, and actions. The common elements of the masks of Mahakala are the five skulls decorating his crown, a symbol of the transmutation of the five “kleshas” (negative emotions) into the five wisdom.
