Description
The embodiment of sacrifice and the savior of Earth, Vishnu’s third avatar, Varaha, is presented in a highly charged form in this ‘panchaloha’ bronze sculptural image, along with his consort Varahi, or the Earth goddess Bhudevi. This visual presentation is also symbolic of what Hinduism today celebrates as Varaha Jayanti, which marks the mythological celebration of Varaha defeating Hiranyaksha, who stole the Earth and hid her in the ocean, and rescues her upon the submission of the demon. Varaha’s tusks, notably, are understood to have supported the Earth’s retrieval from under the ocean. While a unique zoomorphic form of Varaha is still present in Khajuraho – complete with carvings of sages, gods, and the saptmatrikas – we have greater evidence of anthropomorphic forms of this Vishnu’s avatar, like the Gupta-era wall panel in Cave five at Udayagiri. Varaha’s iconographic depictions have been detailed in the Agni Purana, Vishnudharmottara Purana, Matsya Purana, Narada Purana, Skanda Purana, and other texts.
