    Description

    The brass figure of Lord Vishnu sitting on Sheshnag is nicely carved out with a deep sense of finesse. One of the Trinity Gods in Hinduism, the other two being Lord Shiva and Brahma, Lord Vishnu is responsible for the preservation of the universe. He is normally depicted as resting in a reclining Sheshnag in the ocean. It is believed that Vishnu takes birth every time there is an impending catastrophe before the planet earth. In Hindu tradition, Shesha, also known as Sheshanaga or Adishesha is the king of all Nāgas, one of the primal beings of creation, and according to the Bhagavata Purana, an avatar of the Supreme God known as Narayana. In Puranas, Sheshanaga is said to hold all the planets of the Universe on his hoods and to constantly sing the glories of Vishnu from all his mouths. It is said when Adishesa uncoils, time moves forward and creation takes place. When he coils back, the universe ceases to exist. Shesha is generally depicted with a massive form that floats coiled in space, or on the ocean of milk, to form the bed on which Vishnu lies. According to Mahabharata, Shesha was born to sage Kaśyapa and his wife Kadru. Kadru gave birth to a thousand snakes, of which Shesha was the eldest. After Shesha, were born Vāsuki, Airāvata and Takṣaka. As a lot of Sesa brothers were cruel in nature, Sesa left his mother and kin, and resorted to austere penance. His penances were so severe that his flesh, skin and muscles dried up and merged with his frame. He was able to please Brahmā. Following this, Shesha was able to keep his mind under control so that he could continue to perform ascetic penances. Brahma asked Sesa to go beneath the unstable earth and stabilize it. Sesa agreed and went to the netherworld, and stabilized her with his hood. He is known to support her even today, thus making Pātala his perennial residence.
