Bhairav, the Nepalese representation of the ferocious form of Shiva plays an important role in Tantric worship. His two principal hands hold a chopper and skull cup, while his other arms hold a severed head, and various weapons and emblems. He is adorned with a garland of skulls and a crown. He is supported by Ganesh, the son of Shiva and Parvati, who is the remover of obstacles.
