The rarest of all, this Gajendra Moksha sculpture is inspired from the sacred book of Hinduism, Bhagavata Purana and is explained as ‘Liberation of Gajendra’. The superfine carvings and structures of this wooden Gajendra Moksha sculpture are taken from the antique patterns of South Indian temples. Gajendra was an elephant king who was offering flowers to Lord Vishnu near the lake and was attacked by a crocodile, who held him by his leg and even after much hard work, Gajendra could not rescue himself from the clutches of the crocodile. So, to protect his devotee, Lord Vishnu came down to earth and hence Gajendra achieved moksha, or liberation from the cycle of birth and death.

This wooden sculpture depicts this episode by its beautiful carvings where Gajendra, the elephant can be seen groaning in pain at the bottom as the large crocodile (makar) has held his leg tightly. Seeing this pain, Lord Vishnu along with his consort, Parvati on his laps can be seen ascending down on earth on Vishnu’s vahana, Lord Garuda. The facial features of all the three deities reflect their innate natures effectively; ornated in rich multi-layered crowns having been carved like the long South Indian temple styles and the awe-struck jewels that charmingly comply with their royal garbs, the sculptor has showcased his expertise and the quest for perfection, in this beautiful work of art.

The pedestal has its designs from the floral patterns and the large Kirtimukha topped aureole is charmingly sculpted in multiple layers of varied designs having the outermost one in large flower petals. The bright glow and dual color tone of this marvellous wood quality, enhances the solidarity and beauty of this Gajendra Moksha statue furthermore.
