Antique Nepalese Painting on Wood: Mahakala

This antique painting of Mahakala is done wood.


Mahakala is a significant deity in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sikhism. Mahakala is an integral part of all forms of Buddhism. According to Vajrayana Buddhism, Mahakala is a protector deity known as “Dharmapala” and a form of “Avalokiteshvara”. The deity is generally considered a manifestation of Lord Shiva and the consort of Goddess Mahakali in Hinduism.

Mahakala is seen standing on the corpse of two human bodies, thus symbolizing the death of negativities and the complete uprooting of negative patterns to such a point that, like a dead body, they will not come to life.
