This powerful Indian bronze is in the continuity of the Chola style in the early beginning of the Vijayanagar period. The details such as the holy cordon are modeled delicatly.

Visnhu is the protector god, the curator of the cosmos. This sculpture represents Vishnu with his usual attributes. He holds the solar disk in his upper right hand, sudhdarshan chakra, symbolizing the mind. With his lower left hand, he holds the mace, gaddha, which represents the individual existence. The lotus flower, padma, is in his upper left hand, it represents the liberation. With his lower right hand, Vishnu does a sign and does not bear a conch. His head is adorned by a high crown to show his supreme authority. A holy cordon decorates his chest and bracelets representing the goal of life are attached around his wrist.
