Jajarkot Nepal stone figure praying man
Much rarer than the wooden devotional figures of the middle hills of Nepal are the stone ones. This figure of a praying man with deep set eyes is very simple but powerful. It has been covered by kaolin and milk offerings so thoroughly that the stone surface itself is totally obscured.

The figure is four inches wide at the base and is eleven inches high. It weighs just under four pounds.
