Gem-studded Mahakala Pendant (Tibetan Buddhist Jewellery Made In Nepal)

Gem-studded Mahakala Pendant (Tibetan Buddhist Jewellery Made In Nepal)

Like the rest of the art produced in Nepal, Nepalese jewellery is characterised by rich colours, high-precision workmanship, and a devotional-spiritual statement. This pendant is no exception, what with its earthy colours that depict the central Mahakala image. It is an example of a wrathful deity of Nepalese Buddhism. Unlike the calm Buddha and bodhisattva figures one usually encounters, mahakala figures exude violence and are invincible when it comes to rooting out whatever adharm may lie along the devotee's path to enlightenment. One such mahakala, of great ferocity of form, has been smithed onto the foundation silver of this pendant.

The figure is four-armed and bears the all-important implements required to overpower the adharmee. Its eyes are determined, teeth bared, lending to a merciless composure of countenance. Its legs are splayed such as it is about to pounce in attack. Note the glittering shringar and the red-coloured gem-laden crown - the handiwork is superb and the finish flawless. A number of gemstones in pastel blues, greens, and golds complete the picture. They fill the gold-lined aureole of Mahakala, as well as outline the composition with their flame-like shapes. A row of matching-coloured lotus petals constitute the Mahakala's pedestal, which is an indispensable aspect of Oriental iconography.
