Why this is a
Masterpiece

Created as a spiritual object to temporarily house the Damdinsandov deity, this statue is unique to Mongolia. It depicts mystical Buddhist iconography to ward off bad spirits and was produced using highly skilled hand-beaten copper techniques. The clothing reflects those worn by warriors in 18th century Mongolia.

History of the Object
This deity originates from the Nyingma tradition that Lama Zonkhapa brought to the Gelugpa tradition. The sculpture also reflects the Hayagriya tradition in Mongolia wherein the Hayagriva’s heart mantra is recited during horse riding competition. The sculpture has three faces, three hands, a rosary made of human heads and sitting atop the deity’s head is a horse head.
