Thangka of the wrathful deity Mahottara Heruka, Tibet, c.early 18th century, gouache on cotton, 41.5 x 32.5 inches, in a cherry wood frame 49 x 39 inches, central figure of the seven tiered and many headed wrathful deity Mahottara Heruka in consort with Krodheshvari, wearing a garland of freshly severed skulls and a tiger's skin, trampling nine figures under each foot, Nyingma monks at top left, plus many additional wrathful deities, a striking work capturing the inherent dualism found in this Heruka being; colors still quite good and bold.
