Description

Vishnu, the Preserver or the Protector, is one of the three deities in the Great Trinity of Hinduism, along with Shiva and Brahma. The followers of Vishnu form one of the main denominations in Hinduism, called Vaishnavism. Statues of Vishnu usually depict him holding the conch shell (shankha), discus (chakra), mace (gada) and lotus (padma).

This sculpture of Vishnu is exquisite in its craftsmanship, with intricate details on the figure of the deity. The deity stands on a highly decorated base, and is encircled by a prabhawal (arch) ring that features elaborate openwork, set between floral motifs. Made of silver and cast using the lost wax process, this sculpture is an old collectible masterpiece.
