This magnificent brass cast, three-faced and six-armed image, carrying Trinity attributes – in two upper-most Lord Vishnu’s conch and disc, in the middle ones, Shiva’s trident and ‘damaru’ – double drum, and in the normal left, Brahma’s ‘kamandala’ – the pot with a handle, represents saint Dattatreya elevated to a god’s status in his very lifetime and hence known in the devotional tradition as Bhagawan Dattatreya. The sixth hand, the normal right and the principal one, held in ‘abhay’ – protection-assuring gesture, is the attribute not only of the Trinity Gods but also the reflection of sublime saintly emotion, divine benevolence and concern for all beings. One of the sons of sage Atri by Anasuya, texts revere Dattatreya as one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu though far above such contention the popular tradition perceives him as incarnating the Great Trinity – the three trinity Gods conjoint, not one of them.
