Metal and Stone Vestiges
Religion, Magic and Protection in the Art of Ancient Tibet
This pre-Buddhist petroglyph of an anthropomorph has a number of idiosyncratic features. These include a diamond-shaped head, both arms held akimbo, short legs with feet pointing outwards, and a triangular torso. Found in isolation there is no accompanying symbolism that might help in the identification or interpretation of this figure.
