    manuscript leaf depicting kalkin leading a horse

    India
    1960s
    34 x 12 cm

     
    This leaf could be Kalkin, also called Kalki, who is the final avatar (incarnation) of the Hindu god Vishnu. His mission is to restore virtue and dharma at the end of the present age (Kali yuga), when these have disappeared and the world is ruled by the unjust. Kalkin will appear to destroy the wicked and to usher in a new age.
     
    He is less commonly represented in painting and sculpture than the other avatars of Vishnu and is often shown accompanied by a horse. According to some legends of the end of the world, Kalkin’s horse will stamp the earth with its right foot,causing the tortoise which supports the world to drop into the deep. Then the gods will restore the earth once again to its former purity.
     
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase.
