This is a ceramic image I sculpted. It resembles a Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist sculpted image called a rupa which depicts male and female Citipati engaged in an ecstatic dance on the corpse of a person who did not adhere to the path of the Dharma (Buddhist code of conduct) when alive. Citipati are ghoulish spirits who lurk in cremation grounds. They are minions of Yamaraja, the King of the Dead. They have been charged with the task of tormenting the souls of the departed who led lives of folly and strayed from pursuing greater spiritual awareness. This is an extremely detailed ceramic sculpture. I sculpted every component of this piece and I hand-painted it. Size: 15 in. high. This artwork is not available for purchase. I could make a similar sculpture for you in a size of your choice that would be cast in bronze. Contact me for more details.
