Icon making is a laborious, time consuming and concentrated job and demands extreme skills. The wax model is a factor on whose technical and aesthetic excellence depends the ultimate perfection of the end product.

Vishnu happens to be one of the most prominent Brahmanical Hindu gods with numerous iconic manifestations. The idea of swift motion is consistently associated with Vishnu in the Vedas. Thus, Garuda, the king of birds, is his vehicle. This eagle is also called Suparna. In the Rig Veda, Suparna is the attribute of the sun. This indicates the solar origin of Vishnu. Garuda is semi-human and semi-bird. In this brass image, his face is completely human, minus his bird-like beak but his wings and feathers are wonderfully carved. Kneeling in respect to his lord, Vishnu, Garuda waits with folded hands. Wearing a short loin cloth, he is adorned with snakes forming his necklace, armlets and bracelets.

Buddhism being a religion of Indian origin, could not avoid the impact of Hinduism. Buddha was considered the ninth incarnation of Vishnu, Buddhism also has deities like Vishnu in its pantheon; together with Garuda, his vehicle. The Buddhist art has its own style and iconography though. Therefore, this image of Garuda is different from the Pauranic description; nevertheless an elegant image cast in brass.

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.
