    Provenance:
    Private Collection, Singapore, acquired in 2000

    Vishnu is the preserver and protector of the universe, called upon to save it from great calamity. In the current attitude, he is a martial deity, holding the mace and discus, and a conch to call troops to arms.

    Compare with two closely related examples in the Metropolitan Museum of Art including a Vishnu that shares the same iconographic programme and a Garuda projecting from the base, (1987.142.15), see Lener and Kossak, The Lotus Transcendent, New York, p.188, no.146, and a standing Manjushri (acc. no. 2001.758.2) in a flexed pose.
