Sequined Vishnu by Artful Dodger @ Karmaloop

by Andy on April 21, 2008


Apparently Vishnu is the “being responsible for the preservation of the universe,” so I’m pretty sure that if you’re going to make a tee about Vishnu then sequins are an absolute must!

I wonder how Hindu’s (right religion?) feel about people wearing a tee with their God on it when they don’t really understand what it is they’re wearing. You don’t see me wearing a tee with a picture of the Prophet Muhammad on it now do you?

Costiness=$49 (at that price I doubt you’ll see many people wearing this either) Link (get up to 20% of that price by using the rep code AS7594 at the checkout and support HYA in the process)

    The color on the tee is really cool, the blue and yellow go together well.

    This graphic is sick.

    Now that you’ve said Hindi, I feel like a total tool, how could I forget that!

    That’s nothing like what Vishnu looks like (speaking as a Hindu). Just thought I’d point it out: Vishnu looks like an exceptionally attractive young man. Sometimes he has more than two arms, but that’s about it.

    This design looks like a mix between Kali (who is sometimes portrayed with the crazy face and animal-like characteristics) and Shiva (who is blue). Kali is the goddess of Death/Destruction. Shiva is the Destroyer of Evils.

    Just throwin’ down some knowledge.

    Thanks for letting us know Avi, I hope you don’t think I’m too ignorant for not knowing that, it’s been about 8 or 9 years since I was taught about Hinduism.

    I guess that just reinforces my middle paragraph even more, how much of a douchebag would I look if I was wearing this tee, pretending to be ‘spiritual’ (don’t you hate it when people say “yeah, I’m very spiritual”), thinking I was wearing Vishnu and in reality it was just some mish-mash of other gods? Answer: a big douchebag.

    Actually, That’s Garuda. He was Vishnu’s mount, however as Hinduism spread to the Orient changes were made to the God’s and their looks.
    i have the tee in black and red and I am wearing it to a religious event to see how many strokes I cause amongst the older generations :P

    Thanks for the info Arup, now I’m really confused as to who it is!
