  • Antique Java Style Indonesian Majapahit Seated Bronze Vishnu Statue - Protector & Preserver - 29cm/12"

    Measurements Height 29cm/12"

    An antique Java Style seated bronze Vishnu sculpture in the 13th century Majapahit style, from Indonesia.

    Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature.

    The Vishnu is seated on a double lotus flower base, which is itself seated on a raised, decorated pedestal. He is seated, in the vajra position with his right leg is panhandle.

    He holds in his hands a copy of the Hindu holy Vedas and a fly whisk. He holds in his left hand an alms bowl, representing his compassion and charity and his right hand in the wish-fulfilling mudra: his right hand facing down and the palm outward.

    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 finial. The sculpture has a wonderful green patina.
