Black as the night, his face dominated with a golden frown is Mahakala, the fierce Tibetan deity. His black color represents the ultimate reality, the experience of voidness, that which Deepak Chopra calls "the space between thoughts."

His black is contrasted well with the golden-red flames which make up his hair, though traces of black coils can also be discerned. His open mouth with a lolling tongue and bared fangs, large bulgy eyes, flaming arched eyebrows, all contribute to his awesome appearance.

A trickle of the color red can be seen outlining the principal facial features of Mahakala, these essentially highlight his wrath. The snake in his neck indicates that he is derived from the Hindu god Shiva.

He wears a crown made up two intertwined serpents and four skulls suspending festoons. At the center of the crown can be seen the peaceful image of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion from whom Mahakala is said to have incarnated.
