Description
 
A vintage heavy brass alloy phurba and trigu (Kartika), both with iron blades. The Vajra handles are crossed over each other to form one weapon. The three sided blade is held in the mouth of a Makara and there is a horse head representing Hayagriva at the apex. The whole piece is covered in what appears to be orange Sindhura powder, which could indicate that it was previously ritually consecrated.

length approx 11.5 inches
Aquired from a private collection in the USA.
