The image from Dankar Gompa – Spiti – N.India is a Kirtimukha- like character who possibly has links with monster faces that appear across Asia.

Jain Sculpture – New Delhi Museum – India – an C8th head originally from Rajasthan. He is not a Kirtimukha he is simple and plainly a foliate head.


Head from the pedestal of St James – Ste Chapelle – Paris France

A head in anguish from the cathedral at Exeter – Devon – UK
