  Vishnu Anantasayin

 

Cambodia

The remnants of an effigy of Vishnu Anantasayin, i.e. the Hindu god Vishnu reclining on the back of the serpent Ananta, during his cosmic sleep. It is mostly eroded away by corrosion as it was found at the bottom of one of the many baray (fig.) that surround Angkor Wat.
