The colorful deities and demons of India...


Hindu Sun God 🌞

Also known as Vivasvat

Recycled God of the Rising Sun

One of the Γ‚dityas, he apparently started out as a shapeless mass which was thrown out of Heaven with the trash.

He was then reshaped and molded by Tvashtri into the sun we have today. What a wonderful example of recycling.
