Golden Faces

In the garden of the Kopan Monastery, I found this statue containing golden faces. I don’t know what they represent. They were at the entrance to the garden and faced in the four directions so, I am guessing, they might be sentinels or guardians to keep the demons at bay. The face on the top is the stuff of nightmares. At the very top, not visible from this angle, was a Buddha.
