Garuda was a younger brother of Aruna, charioteer of the sun god Surya. His mother was enslaved by nagas (hence the emnity between kites and serpents) and was released only after Garuda brought the serpents an elixir of immortality. The story of Garuda's birth and deeds is told in the great epic Mahabharata. The epic tells us that when Garuda first burst forth from his egg, he appeared as a raging inferno equal to the cosmic conflagration that consumes the world at the end of every age. Frightened, the gods begged him for mercy. Garuda, hearing their plea, reduced himself in size and energy. God Vishnu the Preserver promised Garuda the gift of immortality, and Garuda promised to become Vishnu's mount. Flying onward, he met Indra the god of the sky. From that day onward, Garuda was the ally of the gods and the trusty mount of Vishnu, as well as the implacable enemy of snakes, upon whom he preyed at every opportunity. He is associated with royalty in several S.East Asian countries. Thailand and Indonesia use the garuḍa as their national symbols ~~~~~~~~ Ritual Statues generally depict Gods, deities, Ancestor?s Spirits, Mythological beings, good and or evil spirits, the dead, animal spirits, and any other spirits believed to have power over humans. Many Spirits may be honored with ceremonies and gifts. Tribal Statues can be traced back to well past Paleolithic times. Statues were, and are still made of various materials, included is leather, metal, fabric and various types of wood. The Statues were used with music and dance in ritual performances for Protection, social control, education of the young, enhanced fertility or success, divination, status and entertainment. The figures usually depicted ancestors or spirits; most were venerated and offered prayers and sacrifices in exchange for protection and well-being. Some objects were felt to be magical and were believed to have great powers. These spirits may be perceived via the carvings of the Satue. Most carvings combine elements from several areas of mythology which interact with each other to tell a story. Each element has its own specific meaning and the way they are portrayed or combined is what gives a carving its own special character. The meanings of some elements vary from region to region but all share common roots.
