  • Antique Indonesian Style Java Majapahit Standing Bronze Vishnu Statue - Protector & Preserver - 38cm/15"

    Measurements  Height 38cm/15"

    An antique Java Style standing bronze Vishnu sculpture in the 13th century Majapahit style.

    Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature. Here Vishnu is stood samabhanga on a raised, decorated pedestal.

    His vehicle, Garuda, sits attentively at the base of the Vishnu.

    His left hand holds his gada or mace symbolising his mental and physical strength. He also holds a lotus bud. This represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all. His right hand is held in a gesture that represents his charity.

    He wears a richly bejewelled dohti and upavita. His face has a downcast gaze. Upon his head he wears a decorative Javanese style tiara in front of his Kirita-Makuta or tall conical crown. This symbolises control over Positive and Negative attitudes.

    On his forehead he has a third eye or urna. He has an aquiline nose and elongated earlobes with large ear rings.

    Vishnu is backed by an aureole with a flaming rim, topped by a decorative lotus bud finial.

    The sculpture has a wonderful azurite and malacite patina.

Let Us Help You Find The Piece You Desire

The Naga were safely delivered this afternoon. They are wonderful pieces, and I am very happy to have them. Thank you so much!

I just opened the Buddha statue I purchased from you. I couldn’t be happier! It’s really beautiful, particularly the face. The shipping was faster than pieces I’ve bought on Etsy coming from the US, so thank you!! Do you have any idea how old this statue is? I’m looking forward to receiving the Avalokitesvara statue I recently ordered.

Laura, New York City, NY, USA

The Buddha head arrived safely today. The look of serenity they all possess is very appealing. This sandstone head strikes me as being particularly beautiful. The way the sculptor has created that look of complete contentment amazes me. Just the hint of a smile - definitely more Mona Lisa than Laughing Cavalier! A wonderful piece and I love it!
