19th C. Indian Wood Relief Panel of Vishnu
Item Details
Description
South Asia, India, ca. 19th century CE. An impressive, hand-carved wood relief panel with openwork design depicting a ceremonial procession surrounding the four-armed Hindu deity Vishnu. Capped with a conical headdress, Vishnu sits in half lotus position at the center of the piece and holds out two hands with the fingers of his right pointing upwards and the fingers of his left downwards. His other two arms hold war clubs. The tranquil deity sits atop his mount Garuda, the eagle, and is flanked by his consorts, Lakshmi and Bhumi. Further from the center, two men walk towards the deity, each with a large bird wearing a leash behind them. The background is filled with swirling vegetal designs and the entirety of the narrative is enveloped by a lovely geometric motif border. Size: 31.125" W x 8.625" H (79.1 cm x 21.9 cm)

Provenance: ex-private Boulder, Colorado, USA collection
