More info

Kapala
A kapala (Sanskrit for "skull") or skullcup is a cup made from a human skull and used as a ritual implement (bowl) in both Hindu Tantra and Buddhist Tantra (Vajrayana). Especially in Tibet, they are often carved or elaborately mounted with precious metals and jewels. Many of the deities of Vajrayana, including mahasiddhas, dakinis and dharmapalas, are depicted as carrying the kapala, usually in their left hand. Some deities such as the Hindu Chinnamasta and the related Buddhist Vajrayogini are depicted as drinking blood from the kapala.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin features a wonderful high relief and detailed image of a Kapala, an ancient cup made from a human skull. The obverse of the coin features incredible symbols of Hindu culture and the Coat of Arms of Cameroon. All around the coin, the inscriptions: “WORLD CULTURES” – the name of the series, “2000 FRANCS CFA” – the face value, “REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN” – the issuing country and “2018” – the year of issue.
