Origin: China or Tibet
Age: 25 - 100 years approx

A large, heavy bronze with gold paste decoration statue of the Tibetan Buddhist long-life mother goddess Usnisha-vijaya.

Mahapratisara has four heads and eight arms. She is white in colour and often her heads are coloured yellow, white, red and green. Traditionally In her right hands she holds a vajra, an arrow, a sword and in her left hands holds a trident, a bow and an axe while her two principal hands hold a wheel and a garment - although now none of these items remain with the statue.

It is said that offerings and mantras made to this protectress deity gives great benefit and protection from all forms of dangers and illness, and helps to eliminate past non-virtuous karma. People who perform her practice are said to take rebirth in higher realms, their body becoming a vajra body which is not affected by fire, weapons and others means of harm.

The statue is not of the highest quality, the detailing is not fine, but it is still a nicely proportioned, large rupa. She does not hold any of the ritual objects which she normally holds, these may well have been separate to the statue and lost during it's life. The statue is suitable for use in a shrine room, on an altar or could simply be enjoyed as a work of art.
