The Solemn Garuda, With Snakes In His Hand And Horns On His Head

Every deity in the Hindu pantheon comes with their own vahana, to which rule Lord Vishnu is no exception. Garuda is His vahana, a most powerful creature that combines human limbs and torso with a pair of gigantic wings and an all-piercing beak. Also called Garutman, His name means 'one who flies on the power of one's wings'. He is a widely revered deity in Nepal, where He is to be found at the door of every Vishnu temple. As could be gleaned from this exquisite Garuda sculpture, His roopa resembles the eagle. Sculpted with a great deal of skill and devotion on the artisan's part, this wood-cut composition is the very picture of divine power - a number of dangerous snakes in His control, horns and skull imagery on His crown, and the musculature of a yogi of the highest order.

The thing about Nepalese sculpture is that it is an inspired tradition. It is not only about aesthetics, but also about iconographical perfection. This is because each aspect of the chosen deity has its own significance, and the Nepalese artisan is known for his attention to detail. This Garuda murti is fashioned from wood, which is an expensive medium to work with. It has traditionally been used as an element of rich architectural constructions in ancient temples of the land. Indeed, this solemnly carved Garuda with its dark gold-undertones finish looks fit to be housed in an internal pillar or door-frame of a magnificent Vishnu temple. Zoom in on the highly expressive countenance, the unusual lotus pedestal, and the perfectly symmetrical work on the wings to take in the beauty of Nepalese workmanship.

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.
