19th C. Mahakala Statue broke in shipping. Amazing the head didn't too. Many old mantras and old tsa tsas and zee stones were found inside.

Mahakala is a Dharmapala,a protector of religious law. He is always depicted as an extremely fierce and terrifying deity. His purpose is to help in over coming negative obstacles on the path to enlightenment. A compassionate wrathful deity, he appears evil, like a demon, but functions more like a guardian angel.
