Bone Chitipati Pendent
This boldly magnificent pendant depicts Chitipati (or Citipati), a pair of skeletal lovers known as the Lord and Lady of the charnel ground. Together they represent the eternal dance of death, as well as the attainment of perfect consciousness. Chitipati reflects the disintegration of phenomena, including the body itself, as well as various states of mind. The dance celebrates the liberation that comes from acceptance of impermanence in all aspects of our lives.
This piece was carved by Krsna and designed by Sunil, our good friend in Patan, Kathmandu.
