Creation is visualized as Vishnu asleep, lying on the snake Sesha. Vishnu is here perceived as the source of the universe.

Here, Lord Vishnu relaxes in the coils of the seven headed serpent. From his navel emerges the flowering lotus and from the petals is shown the emergence of Lord Brahma. Vishnu in his incarnation as guide and savior first appears in the world in a form which is linked with creation myths. The four hands hold the key attributes associated with Vishnu. The conch represents the creative spiral, the discus symbolizes the power of the mind, the lotus symbolizes the egg of nescience and the mace is said to symbolize the power of knowledge.

Caressing Vishnu's feet is his consort Lakshmi. She represents prosperity and bounty, and is worshipped to ensure blessings and affluence. On the right side corner of the painting can be seen Garuda, Vishnu's vahana. Garuda has wings and a birdlike human head with a curved beak. Due to his flight across the heavens, Garuda is regarded as a solar symbol. The figures of gods and the goddess are depicted in bright and eye-catching colours. The grayish blue of the waters and the grey serpent skin are almost identical. The curling clouds in the background are also shown in grey thereby distinctly dividing the colour zones.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
