Piece presented on a custom bronze stand

Old ceremonial cleaver handle (kartrika ) in finely chiseled bronze. The set is engraved on both sides, the guard presenting a terrifying kâla: wide open eyes staring straight ahead and surmounted by bushy eyebrows, nostrils dilated in a large muzzle, open mouth and visible fangs between his two hands . It evolves in a register of clouds, the solar and lunar symbols placed above it. The handle has a decoration of three-lobed foliage surmounted by a hemisphere decorated with lotus petals and a fluted border, the upper part ending in a half vajra. The reverse is similar, the guard being differentiated by a tangle of clouds.

The kartrika in Vajrayana Buddhism is a ceremonial cleaver used in tantric ceremonies. It is used to skin bodies and is the attribute of Daikinis.
