These are eight Tibetan Monster Gods whose job is to install fear and terror into evil spirits.
Fully paid-up members of the BODHISATTVAS brotherhood, these compassionate soldiers of love run around like a team of crime-busting heroes, protecting the faith by all means necessary.
This can occasionally involve a little tiny bit of scourging, stabbing and screaming. So, they are hideously good.
The gang includes sweet little PALDEN-LHAMO, NAGPO-CHENPO, SHINJE, TAMDRIN and BEGTSE.
