- 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

Lord Vishnu has many names and Satyanarayana is one of them.

The word Satya would mean ‘Truth’ if it were translated in English but that is only because English language doesn’t have a more apt word to describe the comprehensiveness of the Sanskrit word Satya.

Satya means that which remains the same in all aspects of time, i.e. past, present and future or in other words that which is eternal.

Narayana is a name of Vishnu.

So Satyanarayana means ‘the eternal Vishnu’.

Satyanarayana is worshipped in Hindu households throughout India. Vishnu is the compassionate master of all existence. He is the supreme Purusha of the Sankhyans (followers of one of the six philosophical systems of India), Brahman of the Vedas and Bhagwan of the Puranas.

He is the master of both Jiva (being) and Maya (matter).

This beautiful sculpture depicts Vishnu beautifully. He wears an exceptionally carved, fine crown complimented with three peacock feathers.

He is four-armed. He holds Chakra (disc) and Shankha (conch) in his right and left hands respectively (the upright index finger of Vishnu’s right hand as seen in this sculpture is meant to bear chakra, which is detachable and included with this statue).

This Chakra named Sudarshana is famed as a powerful weapon that is Time personified. It revolves on Vishnu’s index finger and launches at his will. If released on a target it chases it relentlessly and returns to Vishnu only after destroying it.

Vishnu holds a conch named Panchajanya in his left hand, which is purely white and Vedas personified. When blown by Vishnu on a battlefield its sound terrifies the demons.

He bears a mace called Kaumodki in his lower right hand and Padma (lotus) in left.

Satyanarayana is seen bedecked with elaborate jewelry. He wears a garland of wild flowers called Vaijayanti that is seen as an open garland in this sculpture.

A serpent named Shesha serves Vishnu. He is a devotee of Vishnu as well as his own part. While Sesha serves Vishnu as his couch, he also incarnated as Lakshmana and Balarama to serve Vishnu when he incarnated as Rama and Krishna respectively.

Sesha, ever in service of Vishnu is seen in this sculpture as a five-hooded serpent shading him with his hoods.

The artistry this sculpture is created with is very rare these days.
