This brilliant work of art, a painting in miniature format in characteristic Kangra idiom of Pahari art style as evolved in many of its miniatures of around 1800-1810 A. D., one being on this very theme, almost its exact prototype, considered as one of the great masterpieces of Indian art, represents the eight-armed Lord Vishnu riding his 'vahana' Garuda. Garuda is supporting one of his feet on its right palm, while Lakshmi’s, his consort, on its left. The painting, though a contemporary work, abounds in same magnificence and lustre as the earlier Kangra masterpiece of 1800 A. D. Unless chemically examined or an expert eye analysed, one might hardly distinguish this contemporary painting from its 1800’ proto-model.

The green-bodied Garuda with red beak has been represented as couched on a hexagonal golden chowki which an ivory plaque inlaid with precious gems comprising floral patterns tops. The chowki is placed on a garden-terrace conceived with flower-beds on char-bagh pattern and a fountain in front, and on its back a column of taller flower-plants and a large tree with ‘mallika’ tree-type creepers suspending on it with its branches extending over the divine couple like a colourful canopy. Two straight rows of lotuses, comprising low railings, divide the terrace from the garden. In his four right hands the Great Lord is carrying an arrow, lotus, goad and conch, and in his left, a bow, mace, disc and a noose. Appropriately bejeweled Lord Vishnu is wearing his usual ‘pitambara’ – yellow lower wear, and the garland of white celestial Parijata flowers, besides his multi-crested crown.

Supported on his left thigh, Lord Vishnu has riding along him Lakshmi, his consort. Apart that his all hands carry one attribute or the other, those on the left afford Lakshmi from behind dependable support too. In striking contrast to blue, Lord Vishnu’s body-colour, and yellow, the colour of his wear, Lakshmi has been painted with golden complexion, her body-colour, and bright orange, her costume, besides her dazzling jewels which further magnify their glow. Delightfully, Garuda’s green, the sacred bird’s body colour, affords to both, Vishnu’s yellow and Lakshmi’s orange, a contrast not ever thought of. Lord Vishnu is passionately looking into the eyes of Lakshmi.

In Indian thought Lord Vishnu is one of the Great Trinity – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva who represent Creation, Sustenance and Dissolution, the only manifest form of God in Hindu way. The 'Puranic' literature weave around Lord Vishnu great magnificence, spiritual aura and the cult of incarnation. Devi Bhagavata acclaims Vishnu to be the earliest to emerge after the Great Deluge and recommence creation. Vishnu fought a thousand battles against 'asuras', and killed demons like Hayagriva, Madhu and Kaitabha, Andhaka, Vritrasura, Nemi, Sumali, Malyavan and many others. Vishnu creates and sustains and his consort Lakshmi or Shri brings riches, fertility and benefaction.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr. Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of literature and is the author of numerous books on Indian art and culture. Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

Testimonials
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
