Lord Vishnu is the ‘preserver’ in the Hindu Triad and the supreme beings in Vaishnavism; he protects dharma and is said to appear on earth in various incarnations to fight demons and maintain cosmic harmony. A white colored marble reflects the purest form of material that accentuates calmness and self-control. This Vishnu sculpture is chiselled in the most realistic manners out of a single piece of marble and scored to form accurate figurine in natural curves and structure. Vishnu is opined to be the one who enters everywhere and is free from all fretters and bondages.
Here he stands erect on a thick white stone pedestal and all the four hands In their iconic mudras- left front hand holds a lavishly decorated mace which has its top touching the pedestal and right in a gesture of Abhaya, rear left hand holds a conch and right carries a Sudarshan Chakra.

The awe-struck charm of this sculpture also lies with the carved lustrous gold and stone studded jewels, majorly focussing the long flower pendant necklace and complementing earrings.
