A massive sculpture of a Buddhist Deity carved in teak in the form of a mask head surmounted by a small carving of Ganesh. It is believed to be a representation of a Buddhist Door Guardian such sculptures would have been placed at an entrance or doorway of a building, a temple or home, to ward off evil. This sculpture is carved in six separate sections and is a splendid example of such works of art. He came to us from a large restaurant in East London.
Indian, 19th century.

PS: If anyone can shed more light on this sculpture we would be delighted to hear from you.
