Vishnu, Lord of the universe, is a Hindu God known to have reincarnated into more than one form called Avatars. In other words, he is recognizable through the faces of other gods who receive praise within the Hindu beliefs. Here we have sculptures of Vishnu and a few of his forms ranging 8th-19th century. Each piece stands balanced and symmetrical due to the accuracy of capturing his common stance which is known to be standing straight up. You will notice his form as lord Vishnu, with four hands, each one holding a symbolic object. He wears other types of decorative necklaces that are worn throughout his body, each one carrying wisdom and meaning. Vishnu's image and his avatars are highly detailed as each visual capturing of the God are identical but yet different to one another. Without missing any features or parts of the deities, worshipers get the full enlightenment from what Lord Vishnu and his Avatar's stand for.
