Indra is the king of gods and their leader in the many battles against demons. In modern India this once exalted god is rarely remembered but in Nepal his cult still flourishes among both Hindus and Buddhists and he is honored in the popular ten day festival called the Indra-jatra ('The procession of Indra').

Identifying Indra is a relatively easy job for the art historian since in contrast to other deities his third eye at the center of the forehead is horizontal rather than vertical. Here Indra, as befits a king, is seated in the posture of royal ease and is regally adorned with rich ornaments. His crown typically has a single crest, a trait that is rarely shared by any other deity.

The lovingness with which Indra's body has been rendered with its slim yet majestic and taut form speaks volumes about the sculptor's skill. The face has an introspective demeanour and the inward looking eyes are semi-closed, like those of a meditator.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
