Guardian Figure
Western Nepal
20th Century or Earlier
Wood
2" W x 5.25” H
Provenance: Ex Bay Area Collection

At first look this expressive and animated Guardian figure appears to be of stone yet it is made from a hard, dense, heavy wood. Figures such as these are placed in shamanic shrines, at thoroughfares and springs, to ward off negative spirits and energy. The arms, held in a Namaste pose, greet the traveler.
