  • Antique Khmer Style Standing Bronze Hayagriva Horse Kalkin Statue of Vishnu - 55cm/22"

    Measurements H 55cm/22"

    An antique Angkor Wat style Khmer bronze 4-arm sculpture of Hayagriva or Kalkin. Kalkin, literally having or being a horse is the future world savior understood as the tenth avatar of Vishnu, who will return at the end of the next kaliyuga to judge mankind.

    Kalkin is believed to be the future and final avatar of Lord Vishnu, who will appear in a time of great crisis to restore cosmic balance and righteousness.

    He is worshipped as the God of knowledge and wisdom, with a human body and a horse's head.

    Symbolically, the story represents the triumph of pure knowledge, guided by the hand of God, over the demonic forces of passion and darkness. Kalki or Kalkin is often referred to as the destroyer of foulness or the destroyer of darkness.

    Kalkin's role as the future savior is outlined in various Hindu texts, including the Puranas. He is expected to be instrumental in bringing an end to the prevailing darkness and chaos of Kali Yuga. Kalkin is often portrayed as a fierce warrior who will rid the world of unrighteousness and restore dharma.

    Here Kalkin holds his Chakra, Padma (lotus bud), Panchajanya (Conch shell) and Kaumodaki (Gada or mace)

    The Chakra are discus, a circular spinning weapon, often referred to as the Sudarshana Chakra, represents the cycle of time, the eternal nature of the universe, and the destructive power of divine justice.

    The Gada – a symbol of strength – was a common weapon for hand-to-hand combat and was regarded as the strongest of weapons. The Gada or Mace is the destroyer of all opponents.

    The Lotus Bud represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all.

    Kalkin, the future avatar of Lord Vishnu, holds a special place in Hinduism as the harbinger of hope and the ultimate savior. His prophesied role as a warrior who will restore cosmic balance and righteousness resonates with believers, emphasizing the enduring importance of dharma and ethical conduct in the face of moral decline.

    Kalkin serves as a reminder that, in Hindu cosmology, the wheel of time keeps turning, and even the darkest ages eventually give way to a new era of light and righteousness, guided by the eternal principles of Hindu philosophy.

    The intricate detail, dark patina and design of this piece are particularly appealing.
