Praying before an icon of a Hindu god is like having an audience with a king: the worshipper bows and brings praise and offerings in hope of finding favor. Seated images of Vishnu often invite comparison to an enthroned ruler:the god sits with one leg pendent, a pose associated in Indian culture with royalty and a state of casual ease. His posture, his smile, and the way that he leans slightly forward all suggest that he is happy to speak with the visitor. He holds the conch shell and discus , which emit small flames, an indication of their great power.
This piece is a depiction of Lord Vishnu embodied in the King of Boon Bestower. You see the king seated on a medieval Indian throne holding the four items typical of Lord Vishnu (lotus, mace, conch, and a discus; a religious weapon. The reflective symmetry of this piece creates a beautiful unity around this Hindu God.
