The mighty Garuda has his earliest reference in Vedas, where he has been invoked by the name of Shyena, the golden bird. In Vedic literature Shyena had brought nectar to earth from heaven; in 'puranas' the bird that brought it is Garuda. Thus, Shyena and Garuda are the same. The sculptor here has depicted the Vedic vision of Garuda, with his golden body shining forth in splendor.
