Indra is one of the most powerful of all gods in the Vedic Pantheon. In Nepal, a huge festival is still celebrated in his adoration, known as Indra jatra, during the celebrations of which numerous icons of the deity are carried out in processions. This sculpture depicts the god in a manner that is typically Nepalese.

The youthful Indra, resplendent in his decorated crown and ornaments, sits relaxed in the posture known as maharajalila asana, a comfortable way of sitting by Indian princes on their thrones. His right hand rests languidly on the corresponding knee, while the left, placed on the ground, helps him support his posture.

While all other gods in the Hindu Pantheon invariably have their third eye placed vertically between the eyebrows, Indra’s is marked horizontally. This is a distinguishing attribute of Indra from other deities. More importantly, this third eye symbolizes the thousand eyes of Indra, mentioned in the Vedas, where he is often called as ‘Sahasraksha’, or the thousand-eyed.
