Goat Kapala

One of my favorite pieces for sale in the shop at the moment, a Tibetan Goat Kapala. Metal is fashioned over the goat skull and adorned with several small silver, copper and brass foil skulls and colored glass. It is used in both Hindu and Buddhist tantric rituals, also occasionally found near the entrances of shrines of Tibetan Buddhist believers. Circa 1950.
