Vishnu in concrete and paint

Vishnu as a mural in concrete and paint. The decorative relief is on the wall of a small temple in a private home. Eastern main road, Trinidad.

Vishnu is described as the all-pervading essence of a all beings, the master of the past, present and future and the creator and destroyer of all existences.
It has been brought to attention that the mural is more likely a portrayal of Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom. Thank you for your observation.
