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.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
