EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite 8th century sculpture depicts the Hindu god Vishnu mounted on his divine bird vahana, Garuda. The image, believed to have originated in Central Java, Indonesia, showcases the rich artistic heritage of South East Asia during this period. Vishnu, one of the principal deities in Hinduism, is shown in his regal form, with four arms, each holding a symbolic object - the conch shell, the discus, a lotus flower, and a mace. His serene expression and the intricate details of his garments and ornaments reflect the advanced craftsmanship of the time. Garuda, the mythical bird, is known as Vishnu's mount and is depicted with spread wings, ready to take flight. The bird's body is adorned with intricate patterns and its wings are delicately carved, revealing the artist's mastery over the medium. The copper alloy used in creating this sculpture has retained its vibrant colors, adding to its visual appeal. This sculpture is a testament to the rich cultural exchange that took place between India and Indonesia during ancient times. It is now part of the South and Southeast Asian Art collection at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), where it continues to inspire awe and fascination among visitors. The Hindu God Vishnu on His Mount Garuda (image 1 of 2) is not only a religious artifact but also a historical treasure that offers valuable insights into the artistic and religious practices of the past.
