Vintage Brass Annapakshi

  • Rs. 22,500.00

This vintage brass collectible is a large sized annapakshi mounted on a wooden base. The annapakshi is crafted in great detail with fine workmanship across the face, body and the tail of the piece.
The Annapakshi or the divine swan is a mythical bird that is often misread to be a peacock. Its body and beak resemble a swan whilst its elegant feathers and crest descend from the peacock. Legend says this mythical white bird flew down to the earth from the heaven. Widely known for its purity, Rigveda states this bird has said to have abilities that can separate pure milk from a solution of milk and water. The underlying theory of this thesis is that the bird has knowledge and wisdom to choose truth over falsehood, virtue over sin, real over make-believe."
