Lord Vishnu is one of three supreme deities in Hinduism. While Brahma creates and Shiva
destroys the universe, the role of Vishnu is to preserve and protect the universe. Vishnu is
infinite, that is, he has no start and no end, he was never born, and he is never going to die. He
exists beyond the realm of time ever resting in the middle of mythical 'Kheersagar'. A whole sect
of people are devoted to the worship of Vishnu as the supreme lord of the universe who are also
known as Vaishnavites.
Lord Vishnu symbolises the eternity of the universe and its expanse beyond our imagination.
This bronze statue of lord Vishnu is made using the ancient Madhuchista Vidhana technique
(lost wax) by the brilliant craftsmen of Swamimalai. The statue which resembles the ancient
south Indian depiction of Vishnu captures the lord in his full dignity and glory.
The four armed god is standing in absolute stillness with his upper two hands holding the Shankh (conch) and Chakra (his weapon), the symbols of Vaishnavites. While his lower left hand is resting, the right hand is blessing the devotees with utmost compassion. The lord is clad in Dhoti and beautiful pieces of jewelries. The delicately crafted crown is adding to the divinity of the statue. The face of the lord is ever calm and emanating grace and devotion.
This beautiful statue illustrates the eternal god in contagious ecstasy yet timeless silence. The grace of the divine feels ever present in the very presence of this statue.
