Description of the photo

This is a beautiful sculpture of Bhairavar. He is in Samabhanga, feet in Brahmasthana, naked without clothes, Caturbhuja with a dog behind him. His front right hand is holding a Trisula, his front left hand is holding a Bhiksapatram, his back right hand is holding a Damaru, his back left hand is holding a noose Pasa. Truly a marvellous sculpture.
