A masterfully rendered Tibetan Buddhist painting from the late 17th century plays a prominent role in "Wrathful Compassion" at Kapoor Galleries, 1015 Madison Avenue. The work, rendered in mineral pigments and gold on cloth, portrays the deity Vajrakila as one the great protectors of Tantric Buddhism, a very rare subject in Tibetan Buddhist paintings.
