    manuscript leaf with hindu god narasimha

    India
    1960s
    Approximately 35 x 16 cm

     
    On this antique manuscript leaf is the god Narasimha who incarnates in the form of part lion and part man to destroy evil and end religious persecution and calamity on earth, thereby restoring Dharma.
     
    Narasimha is seen with a demon, Hiranyakashipu, in his lap whom he is in the process of killing. The demon is powerful enemy of Vishnu because Vishnu killed his brother.
     
    Hiranyaksha has special powers by which he could not be killed during the day or night, inside or outside, by god, demon, man or animal. With these powers, he creates chaos and persecutes all devotees of Vishnu.
     
    Vishnu understands Hiranyaksha’s powers and he creatively adapts into a mixed avatar that is neither man nor animal. Thus, he can kill the demon at the junction of day and night, inside and outside. Narasimha is known primarily as the 'Great Protector' who specifically defends and protects his devotees from evil.
     
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase.

    Hi I am Willian Mitchell Antiques.

    I have a variety of items from different corners of the globe. My work
    as an English teacher has taken me to Asia, Africa and the Middle
    East. It is this travel that set me on the road to antiques and
    collecting. Shops, outdoor markets, private homes, and individuals
    have been the source of my collection. I am especially attracted to
    illustrated textiles and manuscripts and have several on offer. I have
    even more of these from my recent travel to India. I continue to love
    the hunt and the interesting people I meet along the way.
