This beautiful Brass artifact depicts the head of Gangadhara Shiva in an exquisite feat of handcrafted art. We see his eyes closed in concentration as the mighty Ganges descends through his hair. We see a personification of the divine Ganges herself at the top of this statuesque mask.
Lord Shiva himself is depicted with the usual third eye and a Naga, the cobra snake around his neck. The neelkanth is represented by the three horizontal lines around his throat. The customary crescent moon lies against his hair and the strong downward waves of the river. Lord Shiva is wearing the Naag Kundala, the pronounced snake earrings in his ears. The beads of rudraksha around his neck complete the ornamentation of the fiery ascetic god.
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.

These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars.
