Finely cast phurpa, showing, from top to bottom: three deitiy heads, then a "dorje", then a "makara" head swallowing snakes, surmounting the triple blade. Bronze, dark green patina in the recesses. Tibet, 18th century. Height: 8 1/16" (20,6 cm). The piece is nicely mounted on a custom metal stand. Obvious signs of great age, otherwise good condition.
