When Vishnu is awake, he rides upon a bird, half vulture, and half man, named Garuda. In Puranic lore, he is the son of Kashyapa and Vinata. His Vedic name is Garutman.

Upon a several-tiered pedestal stands Garuda, with his palms folded together and raised to his chest. Upon the face of a vulture, with a sharp, curving beak, he wears a karandamukuta (high crown). His feathered wings arise from his shoulders to spread horizontally. With his body slightly bent forward, he stands reverently in attendance. Ornaments befitting his semi-divine status decorate his body. His lower garment is more akin to Roman costumes than Indian. Neck downwards, the body is tall and sleek; the hands and feet are flat showing no traces of the fine modeling present on rest of the body.

The image as well as the pedestal boast of triple effect polish i.e. silver, bronze and brass. The three tones are used in a way neither to clash with each other or overshadow the grace of the other. Fine carving and chiselling can be seen. All these finer aspects get together to make it an outstanding piece.

  • Whilst I agree that the short, edged skirt-like lower garment is not typically Indian, I would suggest that it is more in line with garments from Mesopotamia (Iraq) where this style was popular.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
