  • Antique Java Style Majapahit Standing Bronze Vishnu Statue - Protector & Preserver - 29cm/11"

    Measurements - Height 28.5cm/11"

    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, round pedestal. The lowered right hand makes the boon bestowing gesture (varada mudra). His left hand holds his gada or mace symbolising his mental and physical strength.

    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 brown patina.

I want to thank you very much for this beautiful sculpture. Thank you so much. It is beautiful to look at, but there is something special in holding it too, the weight and also the feel of the artist .
