The vahana of Vishnu steeped in legend, mythology and modern symbolism as a bird creature that has a mix of eagle and human beings. Garuda is an enemy of all snakes and represents birth and heaven. In Indian art form, Garuda is depicted in human form; shown here as standing on a realistic multi-levelled rock with the white colored marvellously styled and carved feathers stretched up to a mile wide.
This cosmic immortal bird-god or the king of birds is favoured by both Hindus and Buddhists; having torso and arms of a strong man in a dark golden brown shade and a traditional Nepali Buddhist crown in white and ted combination. He defeated snakes in a battle and wears one as jewelry and the other he carries in his vicious looking beak and holds the ends by hands.
The fierce expression of his eyes and his glorious sight portrays him as a symbol of virtue, hope and rebirth with the additional quality of being a brilliant warrior and a military prowess. This sculpture is carved in awe-struck briefings and vigilant gestures.
