About this object

Stone Slab cut into a rounded rectanular shape carved with Hayagriva. He stands lunging to the right on a lotus stone and is treading on snakes. He wears the protective expression and has three eyes. His raised right hand holds a five pronged dorje, his left hand forms the gesture of power mudra. He is painted in a dark colour, and details are picked out in orange. His immediate background is yellow, with the nimbus in red. The lotus pedestal is picked out in yellow. There is possibly a garuda at the pinnicle of the nimbus. Tibetan script on reverse - artist's consecration mantra.
