Measurements Height 34cm/14"
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. The Vishnu is stood samabhanga on a raised double lotus flower base, which is itself seated on a raised, square pedestal.
Vishnu holds lotus flowers in his upper hands. The lotus flower represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all. His lower hands are held in a gesture of teaching.
He wears a richly bejewelled dohti and upavita. Flowing robes cascade down his body from his arms.
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.
The sculpture has a wonderful aged malachite patina.
