Ritual DAGGER called Phurbu
Tibet
End of the XNUMXth century - beginning of the XNUMXth century
Bronze
H .: 20,5; L .: 3,5 cm

This bronze dagger is made up of a short three-sided "blade" ending in a point. Each of the sides is engraved with a couple of intertwined naga snakes, emerging from the mouths of three Garuda. The handle is structured in five registers animated with plant motifs, skulls and three faces of Mahakala, the whole surmounted by a horse's head.

The phurbu are linked to Buddhist beliefs. Indeed, the three sides of the blade refer to the destruction of ignorance, attachment and aversion but also to the mastery of the three times and the three worlds. These ritual daggers also had the ability to be able to nail demons.
