Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description The Hindu god Vishnu stands with figures personifying two of his four attributes: On his left is a male figure representing his discus, and on his right is a female figure representing his club. When the sculpture was intact, Vishnu would have rested his two lower hands on their heads, while holding the conch shell and lotus in his upper hands.
