Garuda - Man-Bird Deity, Bali

Mythical bird by Amrish Patel / 500px

Garuda est un homme-oiseau fabuleux de la mythologie hindouiste & bouddhiste, fils de Kashyapa et de Vinatâ et frère d'Aruna, le conducteur du char du dieu Sûrya. C'est le vâhana, ou monture, du dieu Vishnu. Il est considéré comme le roi des oiseaux, ennemi naturel des nâgas. Mais Nâga et Garuda ne sont en fait que deux incarnations de Vishnu, les deux aspects de la substance divine, en qui ils se réconcilient.
