Exotic India presents a skilfully crafted brass sculpture of Lord Dakshinamurti, reflecting the hues of copper and gold. He is crushing the demon ‘Apasmara Purusha’ with his right leg while his left leg rests comfortably on the right thigh. His right hand is in ‘chinmudra’ and in the same hand, he is holding a rosary. In his upper right hand, Lord is holding ‘damarukam’ around which serpent is coiled. In his lower left hand, he is holding ‘Vedas’ and in his upper left hand, he is holding a torch of flames. The sacred thread runs across his chest and apart from that, the upper torso is decked up with Kati Bandha (jeweled waistband), necklacesarmlets, and bracelets.  While the lower torso is wrapped with the tiger skin. The river Ganga is gushing out of his matted hair and one can see that onto his left and right side of his head sun and moon are crafted. If you will see the statue carefully you will realise that the Lord’s eyes are closed as he is immersed in deep meditation and one can perceive the essence of serenity and purity. The base of the statue is a vruksha on which the detailed carving of beautiful flowers provides divine luster to the deity. The four sages sitting around the deity are his disciples. According to the Karanagama scripture, these four rishis are Agasthaya, Pulasthya, Vishwamitra, and Angoras. These aged sages’ matted hair is coiled upon their heads and they are worshipping the Lord with their folded hands and sitting in ardh padmasana (Half Lotus posture).

Lord Dakshinamurthy is worshipped to initiate intelligence, memory, and steadfastness. These virtues develop skill and capability in his followers to become aware of absolute consciousness.

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.


  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.



  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.

  • 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.
