"Vahana: Divine Mounts in Hindu Mythology" In the realm of Hindu mythology, vahanas hold a significant place as they are the divine mounts that carry gods and goddesses. These celestial creatures symbolize power, grace, and loyalty while serving as a means of transportation for deities. One such enigmatic vahana is Dhumavati/Matangi, an intriguing creation from 1885-90 whose creator remains unknown. With her smoky appearance and serene demeanor, she embodies both destruction and wisdom. Shri Sheshanarayana is another captivating artwork from 1886 where Vishnu Narayana gracefully rides on Shesha, the multi-headed serpent. This masterpiece portrays Vishnu's supreme authority over cosmic forces. The garuda bird takes center stage in two remarkable pieces - one from 1928 showcasing its vibrant wash technique and gold paint on paper; the other from the 16th/17th century depicting God Vishnu riding his mount with utmost grandeur. Garuda represents strength and speed while being revered as Vishnu's loyal companion. A stunning portrayal from the 11th century showcases God Vishnu accompanied by Goddess Lakshmi on his majestic mount Garuda. The intricate details highlight their divine presence amidst adoration. Garuda's devotion to God Vishnu is beautifully captured in various artworks - kneeling with hands in Anjalimudra gesture during prayer; standing tall with hands raised in reverence; or astride his mount exuding magnificence during the 17th/18th century. Another captivating moment unfolds when Shrinathji reveals himself to Vallabhacharya atop a mountain peak called Pratham Milan. This sacred encounter signifies divine communion between devotee and deity. Not limited to just Garuda, other mythical mounts also find their place among these masterpieces. A mysterious bull believed to be Nandi, possibly God Shiva's mount, is depicted in a 9th-century artwork.
