Mahakala Stone Statue: Mantra Empowered, Nepal, 20th Century
A remarkable carving of the wrathful guardian sitting on, thereby subduing, ignorance.
He is depicted on a thorn supported by elephants representing Wisdom and Snow Lions representing Guardians, crowned by Garuda. The Aum Mantra of empowerment is painted on his back and the presence is powerful.
It appears to be once part of a larger presentation.
