  • Antique Indonesian Style Majapahit Standing Bronze Vishnu Statue - Protector & Preserver - 24cm/10"

    Measurements Height 24cm/10"

    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 round lotus petal pedestal which is itself stood on a decorated pedestal.

    The left hand holds a Kalasha. The kalasha is considered a symbol of abundance and "source of life" in the Vedas. It is referred to as "overflowing full vase" in the Vedas. The Kalasha is believed to contain amrita, the elixir of life, and thus is viewed as a symbol of abundance, wisdom, and immortality. Vishnu's right hand is held in a gesture of teaching.

    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 beaded border and flaming rim, topped by a decorative lotus bud finial. The sculpture has a wonderful dark patina.

It really has an aura, a presence about it........more powerful than I expected, and I had very high expectations! I am very appreciative and honored to become Ganesha's new keeper! Thank You for allowing this to happen!
