Description
 
An antique thangka of Dorje Pakmo or Vajravarahi who is the ecstatically fierce dakini. Her head is surmounted by the head of a sow whose screech shatters illusion. The sound of the screech obliterates all concepts and sharply confides the direct meaning - the one taste of Emptiness and Form. Vajravarahi arises from the Chakrasamvara cycle of tantras belonging to the wisdom class of Anuttarayoga Tantra.

Condition: Mostly Good, however, there is a fair bit of weathering to the front of the canvas which is commensurate with age. The brocade frame also shows signs of weathering from being handled. It is also darkened from an age of butterlamp and incense offerings.

Measurements including brocade:
Height approx 43 inches Width approx 30 inches

please note that this thangka is framed with brocade but is without the dust cover, so would probably be more suited to being placed in a glass frame.
