- The weight mentioned is approximate as this is a large statue involving much artistic effort and artists didn’t weigh the statue after creation. However the weight is estimated in relation to the size of the sculpture by  their creator artists who are very experienced so the mentioned weight is close to actual.

- This statue is of significant size so it is created hollow. It already weighs much and if it were created solid that would have not only increased the weight of the sculpture unnecessarily but it also would be much cumbersome to move the sculpture.

Description

A very well crafted bronze statue of Vishnu as Varaha (boar) holding Bhumi (earth) in his arms.

Vishnu incarnated as boar to save Bhumi from the demon Hiranyaksha who had captured and imprisoned her in the nether worlds.

As Varaha, Vishnu slew Hiranyaksha and restored Goddess Bhumi to her own sphere.

The story of the Varaha incarnation of Vishnu is mentioned in Vishnu Purana and Bhagvat Purana and others.

This bronze sculpture depicts Varaha holding earth after rescuing her. He holds her delicately on his right shoulder, supporting her feet with his left hand.

Vishnu is seen as having the face of a fierce boar with a well-formed snout and protruding tusks. He wears a beautiful crown and his ears are adorned with makara kundala (crocodile shaped earrings).

He holds Shankha (conch) and Chakra (disc) in his left and right hands respectively.

One of his feet is placed on the hood of Adishesha (celestial serpent that serves as Vishnu’s couch), who is also seen in his deva (god) form with hands folded in reverence to Varaha Murti.

Goddess Bhumi is seen offering her stuti (prayer) to Varaha, who is seen admiring her with a hint of smile.

This beautiful bronze sculpture rests on a solid square pedestal.
