This gilt bronze figurine depicts the Buddhist deity Yama Dharmaraja, a protector deity. The name meaning ‘Lord of Death, King of Law.’ His role is similar to those of Hades and Pluto in Greek and Roman mythology. This fearsome and wrathful protector has the head of a buffalo, three eyes, and red hair that flows upward. Around his neck is a necklace of severed heads, while a crown of skulls sits between his two horns. This bronze figurine appears dynamic, with its right leg bent and the left extended on the back of a buffalo. Yama rides the buffalo, a symbol of time due to its slow speed, suggesting that time runs out eventually for everyone. There is a human that lies beneath the buffalo on a sun disc and lotus seat. It is a great figurine for anyone interested in the deities of Buddhism or who wants a dynamic piece for a living area.
