The Many Roopas Of Vishnu

The appeal of Vishnu is manifold and wide-ranging. From His many moods - tints and shades of calm and ferocity - to His beauteous form captured with great skill in the midst of the folklore that surrounds Him, this especial category of Hindu paintings has been devoted to arguably the most popular deity of the quintessential Hindu trinity. He is responsible for the preservation of the universe as we know it, in accompaniment with His wife Lakshmi who presides over resources and wealth, a prerequisite to preservation. He is usually dressed in natural-coloured silks and done up in vibrant shringar. In a number of these paintings He is next to His gracious Lakshmi, while some of these paintings depict His signature life-episodes such as His slaying Hiranyakashipu as Narasimha and being prayed to by the rest of the Indian pantheon. While His sheshashayi stance and the ones exuding divine calm are the most popular with connoisseurs of Vishnu paintings, the unconventional picks from this collection are no less exquisite. For example, the Lord's Varaha and Matsya avataras in all their passion, and of course Narasimha. A painting of the form of Vishnu that the devotee most closely identifies with at a particular stage in their devotion would suit their space the best.
