The mukhamandala (countenance) of Lord Ganesha emerges straight from a resplendent sun. A circular row of the Devanagari inscription of aum, a sacred life-affirming syllable, forms a halo around His head. In fact the sun itself is the halo of Lord Ganesha but, unlike other haloed sculptures in Indian iconography, this one does not comprise a discrete circular diskette at the back of the deity’s head.
Lord Ganesha is widely adored and venerated by Hindus. Son of Shiva-Parvati, He is visualised after the image of a chubby little boy with the head of an elephant. It is an animal known for its innocence and wisdom, which adds to the adorable quality of this boy-deity. Yet there is little to equal His cosmic glamour. It has been captured to perfection by this solar-background composition, an unusual wall-hanging that is sure to uplift the aesthetics of your space. Furthermore it comes in a variety of monotone finishes, from amongst which you may pick the one that goes best with your home or office decor.
From the thickly curving, substantial rays of the sun to the minute adornments gracing the brow of Ganesha, each aspect of this mask has been executed with symmetry and attention to detail. The head tilts slightly to the right, the delicately swirling trunk to the left. A little temple bell dangles from the tip of the Lord’s trunk, which adds to the auspicious quality of the work.
How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?
Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.
Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.
In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth.
Brass idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses are especially known for their intricate and detailed work of art. Nepalese sculptures are famous for small brass idols portraying Buddhist deities. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
