Ritual mask from Tibet.
In metal, entirely handmade.
Citipati (Sanskrit: चितिपति), Chitipati of Shmashana Adhipati is a protective god or dharmapala in Tibetan Buddhism and the Vajrayana Buddhism of the Himalayas. It is formed by two skeleton gods, a male and the other a female, both dancing wildly with their limbs, intertwined in a halo of flames which represent change.
It is said that the Citipati is one of the seventy-five forms of Mahakala.
Their symbol is meant to depict the eternal dance of death as well as a perfect consciousness. They are summoned as angry deities, benevolent protectors of a fierce appearance. The dance of the Citipati is commemorated twice a year in Tibet.
