Vishnu stands with his legs apart holding his four attributes in his hands.  Reading in clockwise direction from his right front hand he holds:  his club, discus, conch and lotus, here a rather flat object cupped in his palm.  His back two arms are extremely short. The figure is encircled with a decorated arch with a line of beads and triangular shaped openings around them.  A stylized sun and moon are to either side of Vishnu’s head.  He wears a variety of simple, lumpy jewelry at his feet are a horse to his right and a bull or cow to his left and between them are three rings lying flat on the base.  At the front of the base are seven stylized horses, identifying this as a combination figure: Vishnu and the sun god Surya, whose chariot is pulled by seven horses.<br />

Her front two hands hold a rosary (also in a reassuring gesture) and a pot. Her other hands fan out around her. Reading clockwise, she carries a wide assortment of weapons, an arrow, sword, feather, club, discus, trident and [?] on her right and conch, bell, noose, trident, club?, shield, bow and a kapala (skull cup).  She has large open eyes and a full mouth and nose.  She wears jewelry including necklaces and shoulder loops, armlets, bracelets and large floral earrings.  Her crown rest atop her head, but there are wing-like elements that fan out behind her ears.  She sits on a squared base with stylized lotus petals over simpler moldings. <br />
