Bhutas were used for worship of supernatural beings or divinised ancestral spirits in the coastal area of Karnataka and Kerala. There are around 350 Bhutas or ‘spirits’ which are broadly divided into heroes of the past who met untimely ends, animals, the elements, and some whose origins are not known.

This rare collectible of a Bhuta lady is most likely from Mangalore. Painted in bright colours, this wooden piece is in a good condition. There is a small crack down the figure’s left shoulder and the left side of the skirt.
