Bhutanese Hand-Carved Bone Shaman Phurba

Length 28cm (11 inches)

 

This incredible hand-carved bone shaman’s phurba or ritual dagger from Bhutan is nothing short of a work of art!  It features a superbly carved 3-faced wrathful deity wearing a skull-topped crown, and a dorje hilt comprising a human head set between two endless knots.  The hilt ends in a wonderful Makara featuring a mythical horned sea creature, leading to a jagged 3-sided blade decorated with nagas. 

 

 

The age of this highly original and decorative ritual phurba is unknown, but it is unquestionably the finest example of bone carving I have encountered.
