Riding her horse side-saddle through a sea of blood, her right hand aloft and her left holding a blood-filled kapala to her heart, a swirling scarf around her shoulders and a garland of severed heads hanging to her waist, her fierce face with pointed fangs and bulging eyes and her flaming hair secured by a crown of smiling skulls, the copper baseplate incised with a double-vajra
6¾ in. (17 cm.) high
