In many countries in Asia and Southeast Asia the eagle symbolism is represented by Garuda, the great mythical bird-like creature.
In Hindu Iconography Garuda is the vehicle of Vishnu. In Buddhism, he is the vehicle of Amoghasiddhi, the Buddha who embodies the all accomplishing wisdom.
The Mask of Garuda is considered to be very powerful and able to keep away snakes, negative vibrations and diseases.
In fact Garuda represents the spiritual energy devouring the delusions of jealousy and hatred, which are represented by his enemy, the snake.
Garuda is also the national emblem of Thailand and Indonesia.
