Sri Vishnu in Hinduism is
the powerful preserver deity, second amongst the Tridevas, the trinity of male
gods who carry on the task of maintaining a balance in the creation. In a
resplendent form, on the throne of the coils of Adi-Shesha, Vishnu in the

The coils of Shesha in
this Vishnu brass are naturalistically and minutely delineated, providing the
great Lord a comfortable royal seat. With his leg dangling gracefully in the
“Maharaja-Lilasana” (a regal posture), the four-armed Sri Vishnu in this statue
surpasses the glory of any earthly monarch. The canopy of Adi-Shesha’s five
hoods adds majesty to the Vishnu brass statue. A conical Kiritamukuta adorns
the glorious god, whose divine physique is ornamented by kingly jewelry and a
beautiful dhoti (loin cloth), whose embellishments elegantly curl on three
sides of the brass icon.
To add an imposing sense

ornate square pedestal decorated with a stylized net of floral vines. On a
small circular platform attached to the square, sits Lord Hanuman, with hands
folded and eyes closed- emanating divine reverence from his presence. He is
closely associated with the Rama avatar (incarnation) of Sri Vishnu, as the
beloved devotee of the dark-skinned prince of Ayodhya.
Available in beautiful
black-hued brass and bronze and exotic antique green, this Sri Vishnu brass
statue is a visual representation of the idea of Vishnu as the primordial
sovereign, who smiles enchantingly while looking after his innumerable
