Description

Traditionally Sculpted Mini Garuda Statue

We have exquisitely crafted the oxidized copper body of Garuda by machine and plated it with genuine Bronze in this mini statue. His flowing hair elegantly illuminates his finely hand-carved face, which is wrathful in expression. We have depicted the Buddhist Bird standing atop a lotus seat carrying a snake with both hands, which seems to be eaten by him. The materials used in this Sculpture are of high quality and will last for many years.

In Buddhism, Garuda is a giant bird of prey. They are sometimes also known as Suparṇa. This means "good wings, good wings". Like the Nagas, they combine the qualities of animals and sacred beings and can be considered the lowest of the Devas. Garuda has kings and cities, and at least some of them have the magical power to transform into human form when they want to deal with humans.
