Gorgeously Draped Lord Vishnu, Canopied By Sheshanaga

The Lord Vishnu is what comes between creation and destruction. He is responsible for the preservation of what Lord Brahma has created, prior to its destruction by Lord Shiva. In this light, He presides over each cycle of creation, sustains it till it is time for another end and another beginning. No wonder He is one of the most popular entities of the Hindu pantheon, a fountain of inspiration to artists all over the subcontinent.

The art of the South has an inimitable character. The media used in this sculpture is locally grown cedarwood, whose natural creme colour does justice to the divine glory of the subject. His dhoti and angavastram fall upon and around His chaturbhujadhari frame in superbly realistic drapes, which is a distinguishing mark of the workmanship. His bare torso and arms are adorned with a world of shringar, sculpted with crisp attention to detail and symmetry.

The distinguishing aspect of this standing Lord Vishnu sculpture is the presence of Sheshanaga, who raises its five-hooded head above His crown. It is the same naga that He usually makes a bed of, in terms of His more conventional iconography. Note how the pleasant composure of His haloed countenance seems to be offsetting the ferocity of the serpent behind Him.
