  • Antique Thai Style Standing  Bronze Vishnu Garuda Statue - 33cm/13"

    Measures (Height) 33cm/13"

    Antique Thai style bronze Garuda, the mount of Vishnu, with wings spread wide in classic Thai form. 

    The Garuda finds its roots in ancient Indian mythology, where it is depicted as the mount of Lord Vishnu, the preserver in Hinduism. In Thai mythology, the Garuda is known as "Krut" or "Krut Pha" and plays a similar role as a divine being associated with kingship and protection. According to Thai folklore, the Garuda is a noble creature that possesses immense strength and power, serving as a guardian against evil forces.

    In Thai art and iconography, the Garuda is typically depicted as a majestic bird-like creature. Its wings are outstretched, symbolizing freedom and transcendence. The Garuda's talons are sharp and formidable, representing its ability to overcome obstacles and protect against enemies. Its association with the sun symbolizes vitality, enlightenment, and divine grace.

    Important in both Hindu and Buddhist religions the Garuda is a large mythical bird with a wing-span of many miles, the bearer of Vishnu. Perhaps with a little 'poetic license' we are told that when the Garuda flaps it's wings hurricane winds arise that darken the sky and blow down houses.

    The Garuda holds a special place in Thai culture as a symbol of royalty and national identity. It is prominently featured in the official emblem of Thailand, known as the "Garuda Emblem" or "Thong Chai Mueang," where it is depicted with its wings spread wide and its talons clutching a royal emblem. The Garuda's inclusion in the national emblem reflects its significance as a symbol of sovereignty, strength, and unity.

    In Thai Buddhism, the Garuda is revered as a guardian deity and protector of Buddhist teachings. It is often depicted in temple murals, sculptures, and amulets, symbolizing protection against malevolent forces and obstacles on the path to enlightenment. Devotees may invoke the Garuda's blessings for protection, prosperity, and spiritual well-being through rituals and prayers.

    The Thai Garuda stands as a majestic symbol of strength, protection, and divine grace within Thai culture and mythology. Through its rich symbolism and profound significance, it continues to inspire reverence and admiration among devotees and admirers alike. As we contemplate the significance of the Garuda, may we draw inspiration from its noble qualities and strive to embody its virtues in our own lives.

    The malachite patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing.
