    Measurements - 28cm/11" (Height)

    An antique Khmer style bronze sculpture of Hayagriva or Kalkin.

    Hinduism, one of the world's oldest religions, is rich with a pantheon of gods and goddesses, each with their own distinct attributes and avatars. Among the ten principal avatars of Lord Vishnu, the Kalki avatar holds a unique place. Kalkin is believed to be the future and final avatar of Lord Vishnu, who will appear in a time of great crisis to restore cosmic balance and righteousness.

    Kalkin, literally having or being a horse is the future world saviour understood as the tenth avatar of Vishnu, who will return at the end of the next kaliyuga to judge mankind.

    He is worshipped as the God of knowledge and wisdom, with a human body and a horse's head. Symbolically, the story represents the triumph of pure knowledge, guided by the hand of God, over the demonic forces of passion and darkness.

    Kalki or Kalkin is often referred to as the destroyer of foulness or the destroyer of darkness.

    Kalkin's role as the future savior is outlined in various Hindu texts, including the Puranas. He is expected to descend atop a white horse, wielding a sword, and will be instrumental in bringing an end to the prevailing darkness and chaos of Kali Yuga. Kalkin is often portrayed as a fierce warrior who will rid the world of unrighteousness and restore dharma.

    Kalkin, the future avatar of Lord Vishnu, holds a special place in Hinduism as the harbinger of hope and the ultimate savior. His prophesied role as a warrior who will restore cosmic balance and righteousness resonates with believers, emphasizing the enduring importance of dharma and ethical conduct in the face of moral decline.

    Kalkin serves as a reminder that, in Hindu cosmology, the wheel of time keeps turning, and even the darkest ages eventually give way to a new era of light and righteousness, guided by the eternal principles of Hindu philosophy.

    The intricate detail, patina and design of this piece are particularly appealing.

    The statue is mounted on a wood block (later).
