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.

Testimonials
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
