Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is an exquisite example of relatively contemporary Buddhist sculpture from Tibet. Both it's colour and finite detail are mesmerising.

Such Tibetan Buddhist metal sculptures would have been housed in monasteries, assembly halls, houses, and private shrines. They were used to ward off the inauspicious, elicit favour from deities and during a variety of ceremonies.
