Bone Figure of Chitipati
A Bone Figure of Chitipati - Shri Shmashana Adhipati, early 19th century, Mongolia
A magnificent carved bone (most likely human) figure of Shri Shmashana Adhipati, the Glorious Lords of the Charnel Grounds, Mother and Father. The two skeletal figures are portrayed in an intertwined eternal dance upon a lotus pedestal, their faces each with three penetrating eyes, mouths open in wide smiles, fangs bared. Both figures wear simple skirts around their waists, rippling with the movement of their dance, long, flowing scarves around their shoulders, and a crown of skulls upon their heads topped by a vajra.
