Antique Indonesian Style Hanging Bronze Majapahit Java Garuda Vishnu Statue - 35cm/14"
Measures (Length) 35cm/14"
An antique Indonesian style bronze Garuda in the 13th century Javanese Majapahit style. The Garuda is cast in classic Indonesian Majapahit style.
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. In both Thailand and Indonesia the Garuda is seen as both a National and Cultural symbol.
Here Garuda can be hung from a chain where he holds 3 oil pots.
The malachite patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing.
