About the Art

Wrathful and terrifying looking Dharmapala Mahakala is name translates to “Dharma Protector” “Great Black One”. As a dharma protector, a good position is given to images and sculptures of these wrathful deities at the entrance doors of the home and
Buddhist shrines. They are not embodiments of evil or demonic powers but the symbol to protect the faithful by diffusing terror in evil.
