Lord Vishnu is revered as one of the main gods in Hindu pantheon who protects the earth and preserves the life on it. He is said to have incarnated on the planet many times and in various manifestations as a guardian, protector and a preserver of the world. Vishnu’s iconography portrays him as having a blue skin, four arms and dressed with extensive jewellery. The sculpture shown here, differs a bit in the skin color, keeping the rest same. White is the color of purity and truth which aptly justifies lord Vishnu’s benevolent nature.
This statue is sculpted out of a single piece of pure white marble and chiselled in accurate cuts and curves. Lord Vishnu is ornated with lavish jewels in gold and stone studded. He stands here generously on a rectangular pedestal dressed up in a light-yellow dhoti, peach kamarband and a bright contrasting green stole that hangs down his shoulders; golden and red borders on his every attire outlines the beauty of his garb.
Chaturbhuja stands in Abhaya and the left anterior hand holds a mace, while the other two rear hands carry a conch and chakra respectively. The stone studded marvellous crown topped with a stylized peacock feather adorns beauteously on his bright golden hairs. The charming and soothing expression of his eyes, red smiling lips and the Vaishnava tilak glorified on his forehead highlight the professional skills of the sculptor.
