Tibet, Lekhan Srog Dag Marpo

18th-19th century, Tibet, Lekhan Srog Dag Marpo, copper alloy and pigment,  published by Christie's.

18th-19th century, Tibet, Lekhan Srog Dag Marpo, gilt copper alloy and pigment, at the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford).

Although this blog concentrates on sculptures up to the 18th century, this is a perhaps more recent yet interesting representation of a Tibetan wrathful character,  associated with Begtse Chen. He has three eyes and wears a coat of mail and helmet, and he rides a wolf.
