Measurements (Height) 44cm/18"
Antique Khmer style seated bronze Vishnu sculpture. The Vishnu is in the post Angkor Wat Bayon style.
Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature. In his hands he holds his mala or prayer beads and his gada or mace symbolising his mental and physical strength.
He also 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.
The Vishnu has perfect balance and proportions which are the key to a fine Vishnu sculpture. The casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly.The patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing.
The perfect traditional in appearance Vishnu to bring serenity and timeless style to you home, office or sacred space.

...the Ganesha statue has arrived safe and sound. I must admit to being somewhat apprehensive about buying something on the net having being burned before with purchases from India, but I absolutely love it.
