Description

The art shows the mighty Chepu’s fierce face  warding off evil and protecting his post. This product was made by the famous wood carvers of  Bungmati village in Nepal. Chepu usually adorns entrances  he is said to bring protection to owners and the place.

According to legend, Chepu is the brother of Garuda and said to be the bravest and most virtuous of all celestial beings. His mother Vinata was impatient to wait for the natural birth of her son thus he was hatched from his egg prematurely with only his hands and head fully developed.  He was said to be the deity of protection hence his image can be found on shrine entrances.

Camphor wood from the specie called Rodolia Amabilis.
