Antique Tibetan Buddhist Carved Wood Shaman Mahakala Three Headed Phurba Dagger

GJPaw salesis pleased to offer a superior selection of Chinese antiques and artifacts with ALL AT !

GJPaw salesis very pleased to offer a Tibetan Phurba originally made for use by a shaman.A Phurba is a special ritual dagger, stake, or nail with a three-edged blade that is used for expelling demonic forces or diseases. Usually a phurba has three sections—pommel, handle and blade. It may be constituted and constructed of different materials such as wood, metal, gems, etc. This unusually large Phurba is made of wood and was originally painted. Traces of the original polychrome are still evident.

The highly unusual pommel of this Phurba displays one of the Dharmapala, the guardians of the laws of Buddhism. Of ferocious and warlike appearance, the Dharmapala wage war on the enemies of the law, the Dharma, and are primarily charged with expelling malevolent spirits. They are honored mainly in Tibet where they are worshiped individually or in groups of eight. The guardian shown on the pommel is Mahakala, considered by many to be the primary Dharmapala. He is shown with three faces and can be distinguished by his crown of 5 skulls. The handle depicts lotus leaves surrounded by aweaving or knot work design, resonating with the “thread-mansion” structures used to imprison demons. The entire Phurba has a triune form, or three-faceted form symbolizing the three doors of liberation.

This example is carved with extraordinary and evocative detail, and despite years of shamanic use, still bears traces of pigments which add to the power and realism of the figural elements. The piece measures a large 15.7 inches (39.88 cm) tall and is in very good museum-quality condition. It comes with a custom steel museum base. It was collected in Tibet many years ago and became part of an important Midwest collection of Buddhist art.
