Suparna, meaning fair winged, was originally a term used in the Rig Veda to describe Garuda, the giant kite of the sun, the vehicle of Vishnu. He is a mythical being, half man and half-eagle. Though not strictly divine, he appears frequently in Vishnu's exploits and is worshipped together with his lord.

Kneeling down in reverence to his master, hands respectfully folded in anjali mudra, his posture and gesture speak of devotion and humility. He has wings, which are not visible frontally, and a birdlike human held with a curved beak. He is wearing a small crown and jewellery befitting a cosmic being. Due to his flight across the heavens, Garuda can be seen as a solar symbol. He is also an arch enemy of serpents. But since Vishnu is linked with both the eternal antagonist, Sesha, the serpent and Garuda, the snake's opponent, Garuda cannot be disassociated from snakes. To strengthen his fact, we see snakes emerging from the head and shoulders of this composite being.

Garuda placed on a circular pedestal, inspires awe as a small but strong image. It inspires one on the way to devotion and integrity.
