Lot details

Tibet, 18th-19th century or slightly earlier. Seated in lalitasana atop a double lotus base with beaded upper edge, the right foot on a small lotus support. Her main left hand holds the dharmachakra at her chest and her main right grasps her billowing scarf, the other six hands radiating around her held in karana mudra and holding a sword, bow, arrow, trident, vajra, and axe. Her face with almond-shaped eyes, thick brows, urna, and full lips, flanked by three further heads. Backed by a flaming mandorla. The reverse neatly incised with a short inscription.

Inscriptions: To reverse, ‘Khung Nak la Namo’ (‘Greetings to Khung Nak’)

Provenance: From a private collection in southern Germany, acquired before 2007, and thence by descent.
Condition: Very good condition with minor old wear, minuscule nicks, light scratches, small dents.

Weight: 268.0 g
Dimensions: Height 15.3 cm

The Pancha Raksha, or five protector goddesses, are a group of female deities who are personifications of five early Buddhist sutras, the oldest of which dates to the 4th century. Principle among the five deities are Maha Pratisara, Maha Sahasrapramardini, Maya Mayuri, Shitavati and Mantra Manudharani. Each has specific functions directed towards accomplishing worldly welfare and happiness, preventing and surviving natural disasters, curing snakebites, overcoming fear, and averting pestilence and epidemics.

The iconography for the Pancha Raksha varies with local practice, and each can differ in color, attributes, and number of faces and arms, making it difficult to identify any representation of these deities with a particular sutra.

Important Changes to Our Terms and Conditions

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our auctions fair and transparent, we recently updated our terms and conditions. We encourage you to read through these updates carefully (§34-50) to make sure you understand them. These updates are specifically designed to protect all serious and committed buyers from bidding against non-payers, who attempt to inflate prices without the intent of paying their auction bills.

For further reading about non-payers at auction, go here: https://www.zacke.at/aboutnonpayers/.

Main points include:

  • Bidders must complete their due diligence and clarify all questions about the objects before the auction. After the auction, Zacke will not answer questions from bidders unless the purchase price has been paid in full. Of course, this does not apply to questions concerning shipping, insurance, customs, etc.
  • A sale cancellation of any kind after the fall of the hammer is not possible. The only exception to this fundamental rule is our guarantee of authenticity [the Guarantee].
  • A Guarantee Claim, however, can only be raised after the purchase price has been paid in full by the buyer and within 45 days after the auction day.

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us at office@zacke.at.

By placing a bid, you agree to our Terms of Auction and Terms and Conditions.
