Pala Statue of Vishnu, 12-13th Century

A Pala gilt bronze statue of the Hindu god Vishnu dating from the 12th or 13th century. The four-armed god stands upright on a double lotus pedestal. Two of his arms extend forward, the left hand holding a conch shell and the right handholding a lotus. His back right arm holds a long gada mace called Kaumodaki, and his back right hand holds a chakra disc called Sudarshana. Vishnu is adorned with elaborate jewelry, a floral garland, a thin shawl, a simple crown, and a tallfinial. There are silver details on the face, earrings, and chakra discus. A pin extends out from the back of the statue, perhaps originally attaching it to a larger display. Dimensions are: 10 inches tall X 5 inches wide, 25.4 cm X 12.7 cm. Weight: 1400 grams. All measurements are approximate.
