Sow-faced Guardian of Justice

Tibet’s answer to Miss Piggy. Known as ‘The Diamond Sow’, she is a hard, judgmental pig-faced deity with a terrible temper.

She presides over the west side of Kathmandu and is completely red. She is able to take any shape, but favors a wild sow when she feels the need to trample her enemies to death.
