When Vishnu is awake, he rides upon a bird, half vulture, and half man, named Garuda. In Puranic lore, he is the son of Kashyapa and Vinata. His Vedic name is Garutman.

Upon a several-tiered pedestal stands Garuda, with his palms folded together and raised to his chest. Upon the face of a vulture, with a sharp, curving beak, he wears a karandamukuta (high crown). His feathered wings arise from his shoulders to spread horizontally. With his body slightly bent forward, he stands reverently in attendance. Ornaments befitting his semi-divine status decorate his body. His lower garment is more akin to Roman costumes than Indian. Neck downwards, the body is tall and sleek; the hands and feet are flat showing no traces of the fine modeling present on rest of the body.

The image as well as the pedestal boast of triple effect polish i.e. silver, bronze and brass. The three tones are used in a way neither to clash with each other or overshadow the grace of the other. Fine carving and chiselling can be seen. All these finer aspects get together to make it an outstanding piece.

  • Whilst I agree that the short, edged skirt-like lower garment is not typically Indian, I would suggest that it is more in line with garments from Mesopotamia (Iraq) where this style was popular.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
