Lord Vishnu and Mother Lakshmi are the divine couple responsible for preserving srishti as we know it. While He belongs to the trinity that otherwise comprises of Lord Brahma, the srishtikarta, and Lord Shiva, the destroyer; She, as His wife, presides over resources and is the Devi of affluence, a precondition for preservation. They are a beauteous couple as portrayed in this superfine watercolour, exuding in their togetherness a world of bliss. It is Lord Garuda who has hoisted the divine couple up on His magnificent shoulders. He is the vahana (mount) of Lord Vishnu, a ginormous example of divine life, unsurpassed in strength and vigour and martial prowess. In fact, in the Mahabharata, Dronacharya employs a military formation named after the great vulpine creature.
The setting is against a Mughal-style garden. Lush vegetation and ample flowering foliage characterise the surroundings of the deities. The parrot-beaked Lord Garuda supports His masters by their feet, the stance of His wings as if He is about to take off into the heavens. Lord Vishnu and His Devi Lakshmi are in auspiciously coloured silks (saffron and red) and gold-and-pearls shringar. She secures Herself in position with a hand on the vahana's crown, as She sits in close communion with Her Lord. They are looking straight into each other's eyes, as His multiple weapons-laden arms flank their composite central figure. A rosy sunset dominates the background, bringing out the beauty of the delicate sprigs that dangle from the shock of green along the upper edge of the painting.
