Because Tantra begins at the highest point, the devotee needs to emulate their chosen deity whilst setting off on the path to enlightenment. It is through projecting oneself on to such fierce forms that one could vanquish the adharmic elements within. The sculptors who made these icons are putting in visual form their own archetypal forces that have helped them in their respective paths. In other words, each of these pieces are authentic and powerful.

Perceiving these pieces as protective and guardian icons as opposed to base demons would do to your space a world of dharmic good.
