A large core of the Hindus are Vaishnavites, devout followers of Vishnu. The worship of Vishnu having sustained throughout the centuries, innumerable images have come to light.

A decorative niche, having partially visible pillars houses the image of Vishnu. The artist perhaps did not want the structure to overshadow the image and so did not hesitate to conceal the dome and the rest of the pillars. Nevertheless, minute workmanship can be observed. On a multi-layered pedestal, Vishnu's image stands in all its glory. This is the sthanaka or the standing image of the Lord.

He is represented as a tall, handsome youth, dressed like an ancient king. The ornamentation, mainly consisting of the mukuta, the bracelets, armlets, earrings and the necklaces, is very delicate. His four arms hold characteristic emblems such as the conch, discus, lotus and mace. The symbolism of Vishnu's attributes is deeper than what meets the eye. However, the artist has managed to create a beautifully symbolic image in a similar environ.

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.
