Artwork-code: TOBO-00596
Category: Woodcarvings - Pre War
Description: The god Vishnu as temple guard. Wooden statue made in Bali 1920-1940
Period: 1920-1940
Comment: Very subdued almost solemn statue. Vishnu sits on a stupa and has a mantra, a certain hand gesture in the Hindu mythology. This feature with the age factor is enough proof that this carving was NOT made for the tourists, but rather as a Hindu object to protect the visitor entering the temple. Most likely it was placed near a temple entrance in a prewar Balinese village. Real folk art!
