Antique Java Style Majapahit Seated & Enthroned Bronze Vishnu Statue - Protector & Preserver - 20cm/8"
Measurements Height 20cm/8"
An antique Java Style seated 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 seated on a lotus flower base, which is itself seated on a raised, wood pedestal.
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. The sculpture has a wonderful dark patina.

Beautiful. I received the Buddha yesterday in the midst of a TREMENDOUS thunderstorm, and it was perfectly dry and nice. (Not only your plastic covering worked, but DHL was nice enough to put the entire box int a huge plastic bag.) Many thanks.

It is an amazing "museum quality" antique bronze!!! For a 19th century bronze antique, I believe the Newark, NJ Museum may express interest if I show them. However, they will never get it and I will have it in my collection for posterity. We will be doing much more business in the foreseeable future, count on it!!!
