迦樓羅與虎
Very intricately designed, powerfully colorful, lively composition! On a green field are a tiger and a tigress, both hissing, their cub between them and admiring its par-ents strength. Trees, blossoms, mountains and a waterfall with lake. In front of the clouds are two peculiarly executed garuda - like horned steers with magic pearls on their heads, red, flamming manes and dangerous snakes in their mouths. The garu-da is considered the "sun eagle" and is the symbolic animal of the god Vishnu. Half bird and half human, he is a destroyer of snakes. The painting is in good condition and was once used as filling for a door.
