A fine detailed bronze figure of Indra sitting on his elephant, Airavata.
Indra's heavenly home is on or near Mount Meru (also called Sumeru). In the Rig Veda, which is a collection of ancient Hindu hymns, Indra is described as the king of the gods. He has authority over the sky and power using his weapon rain the lightning blast. Indra is the god of struggle. For each stroke he drinks a huge amount of soma, making his belly enormous. The soma is a divine SAP. It is said that this SAP allows him to achieve his heroic missions. His power defeated the snake Vritra that had swallowed up all the waters of the world. Indra cleaves the snake's buck with its thunderbolt, the release of the waters and the generation of life. By killing the snake, Indra is separated from the ocean and causes the sun to rise.
