An impressive large iron and bronze ritual Phurba or Kila. Hand crafted to resemble Kilas from the 15th C or earlier. With an iron and bronze nine prong vajra handle and iron blade. Unique and one of a kind!
The three sided blade is held in the mouth of the mythical sea dragon known as Chu-Srin in Tibetan or Makara in sanskrit. The three wrathful deity heads at the apex represent the three kayas and inwardly represent the three channels of the body.
