Default The Gang's All Here

This collection of statuettes was brought back from India by my father during "The Big One" (WWII). They represent Hindu gods. I tried to ascertain which gods they were by asking my friend, Ravi, but he explained there are so many Hindu gods that it would be close to impossible. Anyways, captured with the K-70, Sigma 17-70mm and pixel shift active.

The large one, in the left of the frame is almost certainly Brahma, the creator, with his mount the Garuda bird, which only he could ride.
The middle one may be Saraswati, the goddess of learning, but that is only a wild guess.
The gods in the Hindu pantheon seemed to have a number of avatars, and appeared differently to different people or at different times, so they are hard to sort out.
