(Hindu Deity)VISVAKARMAN

Also known as DEVA-VARDHAKI, VAISHVAKARMAN, VISHWAKARMA, VISHVAKARMAN
Attributes : Noose, book, waterpot
Festival days : Vishwakarma Puja (17th Sept)
Vahana (Vehicle) : unknown

Divine architect and builder of all the bestest things.

Vishvakarman is the original Vedic creator God who designed the heavens and the Earth, the God's palaces, their chariots and all spangly weapons with divine attributes from the bones of Sage Dadhichi. Infact, he designed and built the entire universe.

Seen as the supreme worker, Visvakarman in the very essence of quality in craftsmanship - a stamp from Vish' is a hallmark of excellence and genius, guaranteed. And he always has his toolbox at hand... aswell as a noose, a book and a waterpot. I don't see the link, but there's no arguing with his popularity amongst engineers and factory workers.

In later Hinduism, script fiddlers made Big Vish a mere employee of Brahma, is sometimes referred to as Prajapati - who isn't 'the' creator but the name for anyone who creates, and possibly popped up as Tvashtri, or at least socialised to discuss the poor state of modern craftsmanship over a cup of celestial tea.
