EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite 8th century sculpture depicts the Hindu god Vishnu mounted on his divine bird vahana, Garuda. Vishnu, one of the principal deities in Hinduism, is often depicted as the preserver of the universe. Garuda, a mythical bird with the body of an eagle and the head of a human, is known as the vehicle or mount of Vishnu. This copper alloy sculpture, hailing from Central Java, Indonesia, showcases the rich artistic heritage of South East Asia during the 8th to 9th centuries. The intricate details of the sculpture reveal Vishnu's regal presence, with four arms holding the conch shell, discus, lotus flower, and mace. His serene expression and the peaceful gaze of the bird beneath him add to the tranquil ambiance of the artwork. The delicate folds of Vishnu's garments and the intricate feather patterns on Garuda's wings are meticulously crafted, showcasing the exceptional skill of the artist. The sculpture's vibrant colors, although faded over time, once adorned the figure and the bird, adding to their grandeur. This masterpiece, now part of the South and Southeast Asian Art collection at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), is a testament to the rich cultural history of Indonesia and the artistic achievements of the region during the 8th century. The Hindu God Vishnu on His Mount Garuda (image 2 of 2) is an invaluable piece of art that continues to inspire awe and reverence, bridging the gap between the past and the present, and offering a glimpse into the religious and artistic traditions of ancient Southeast Asia.
