Vishnu carried on the shoulders of his vahana
Vishnu carried on the shoulders of his vahana (conveyance) Garuda. In his upper right hand he holds the chakra (discus) and in his upper left the shankha (conch). His lower right hand is in abhaya and his lower left in varada mudra. Garuda supports the feet of the god with his hands. Two large wings with multicolored feathers emerge from his shoulders. He has a hawk’s nose, a moustache, small fangs and a snake is draped over his shoulders.
