Trimurti Statue - Antique Thai Style Trimurti Shiva Brahma Vishnu Statue - 84cm/34"
Measurements Height 84cm (34")
Antique Thai style standing bronze Trimurti. The Trimurti is the triple deity of supreme divinity in Hinduism.
A triad of deities, Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer are shown in a single sculpture. When all three deities of the Trimurti incarnate into a single avatar, the avatar is known as Dattatreya.
Here we can see the four faces of Brahma, with one face also representing Shiva, with his third eye. The Trilochana of Shiva - the Three-Eyed Lord is the eye of wisdom, free from “Maya”, the illusion, and duality of life. It is also believed to be the source of his untamed energy.
The fourth face represents Vishnu. Above Vishnu can be see the crescent moon of Shiva. The waxing and waning phenomenon of the moon symbolises the time cycle through which creation evolves from the beginning to the end. Since Shiva is the Eternal Reality, He is beyond time.
The Trimurti also holds a mandala and Trident. The Trident or Trishula, is a divine symbol and principle iconography of the Hindu religion. The three points of the trishula have various meanings and significance, and, common to the Hindu religion, have many stories behind them. They are commonly said to represent various trinities: creation, maintenance, and destruction; past, present, and future; body, mind and atman; dharma or dhamma (law and order), bliss/mutual enjoyment and emanation/created bodies; compassion, joy and love; spiritual, psychic and relative; happiness, comfort and boredom; pride, repute and egotism; clarity, knowledge and wisdom; heaven, mind and earth; soul, fire and earth; soul, passion and embodied-soul; logic, passion and faith; prayer, manifestation and sublime.
The casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the faces and hands. Each detail is rendered perfectly. Traditional in appearance, the sculpture will bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.
