Tantric sculpture of Hayagriva (Horse-Necked One), a dharmapala and protector of horses, in the Gaurda (winged) form. Figure is a wrathful manifestation with 3 heads, 6 arms, 4 legs, and ferocious eyes. The upper pair of the six arms holds the paws of a tiger, the skin of which drapes over the back the deity. The lowest pair is in a mudra of possible varada (assurance). The middle pair embraces his consort in ritual union signifying the oneness in creation. Head-dress is garlanded by skulls representing the transientness of human existence. Out of the flames emanating from the head-dress emerges a horse's head. Only when enraged is he capable of destroying the forces of evil. A horse's head emerges from the flames emanating from the head-dress which is garlanded by skulls that represent the transientness of human existence. The consort holds a skull cup in her hand and possibly a snake in her right. Hayagriva stands with his four legs atop four figures. The figure is attached to a base with two prongs. There is a sacred seal on the bottom of the sculpture. A possible hollow in interior with base plugged. This could indicate a sutra possibly enclosed.
