Mahakala, a protector of religion, morals or law, is a type of wrathful god in Buddhism, whose chief role is to avert the inner and outer obstacles.
At the painting’s center is a dark blue patch, whose depths reveal three eyes and a fanged mouth, as if the deity is amazed at his extraordinary transformation.
