A dynamic Lord Vishnu composition in bronze. A one-of-a-kind Vishnu murti that depicts Him in a stance replete with motion and defiance of gravity, in complete congruence with Garuda. Garuda is the aquiline vahana (mount) of Vishnu. He is possessed of the great wings of an eagle and subjugates a pair of supremely vicious-looking snakes.
Iconographically, this is a traditional Vishnu murti. Four arms, of which the posterior hands bear the shankha (conch) and the chakra (discus). Tightly wound dhoti around those all-powerful limbs and a world of gorgeous adornment. An ornate plinth of multiple tiers and lotus petal engraving, in keeping with traditional Indian iconography. Yet, the dynamism of the language of Vishnu’s - Garuda’s - form in this composition surpasses all that.
The dark shade of a baked, almost burnt, earthen colour. Hints of a distinct, coppery blue where there are serrations into the bronze. A tall crown engraved with a miniature Kirtimukham motif, resting on a brow with the most fluid and lifelike of composure in a bronze countenance.
