In Hinduism, Shiva and Parvati's other son besides Ganesha is Kartikeya, also known as Kumara, Skanda, Subramanya, Shanmukha or Murugan. He is the Hindu god of war. His vehicle is the peacock who struts around admiring his own beauty.
Murugan places himself on top of the peacock suppressing it, reminding us not to let pride and egotism get the better of us.
The sculpture displays perfectly the sheer brilliance of Cambodian workmanship. The distinctive patina of the piece is particularly delightful. Styled after artistic techniques prevalent in the time of the powerful Khmer Empire of South East Asia.
