Ramayan is perceived as the greatest and holiest of all epics, not just by Hindus, but by many
men throughout the world. The most enchanting aspect of Ramayana is its characters and the
ideals it puts forth. Its central character, Rama, who resides in the very heart of his innumerable
devotees, is an obedient son, a loving brother, a caring husband, and above all, a divine lord.
He chose to willingly sacrifice his kingdom at the mere words of his father.

At a time when everyone was dwelling in greed and selfishness, he became an embodiment of modesty, dignity, humility, and compassion, putting the welfare of others above his own. And these qualities were not in the words that he uttered, but in the life he lived. That is why, even after thousands of years, he is still revered and worshipped as a divine being. These beautiful bronze statues depict the complete Rama Darbar. Rama is standing with his
consort, Sita on her left, and his brother, Laxman on his right. Rama's most ardent devotee, lord
Hanuman, is sitting with folded hands, near Rama's feet, expressing his devotion to the lord.

both Rama and Laxmana equipped with weapons while the Devi is standing simply blessing her
devotees. Standing on an upturned lotus pedestal, all the lords are wrapped in beautiful clothes
and exquisite pieces of jewellery.
The faces are serene and reflecting divinity all around. Envisioned as an epitome of a perfect
family, a perfect kingdom, and a place of highest devotion, Rama Darbar symbolises the highest
ideals human beings could aspire for.
WHAT IS PANCHALOHA BRONZE AND HOW TO TAKE CARE OF IT ?
Bronze is a metal alloy that has the primary composition of Copper and Tin. There is also an addition of other metals such as Manganese, Aluminium, Nickel, and some non-metals such as Phosphorus. This composition of several metals and non-metals makes Bronze an extremely durable and strong metal alloy. It is for this reason that Bronze is extensively used for casting sculptures and statues. Since Bronze has a low melting point, it usually tends to fill in the finest details of a mould and when it cools down, it shrinks a little that makes it easier to separate from the mould.
" If you happen to have a bronze statue, simply use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or any other natural oil to clean the statue. "
A village named Swamimalai in South India is especially known for exceptionally well-crafted Bronze icons of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. The skilled artisans of this place use Panchaloha Bronze for casting the icons. Panchaloha Bronze is made of five metals; Copper, Zinc, Lead, and small quantities of Gold and Silver. Zinc gives a golden hue to the finished figure and Lead makes the alloy softer for the easy application of a chisel and hammer. The common technique for producing these statues and sculptures is the “Lost-wax” method. Because of the high durability of bronze sculptures and statues, less maintenance is required, and can still last up to many decades.
Exotic India takes great pride in its collection of hand-picked Panchaloha Statues. You will find the murtis of Gods (Krishna, Hanuman, Narasimha, Ganesha, Nataraja, and Kartikeya) and Goddesses (Saraswati, Lakshmi, Durga, and Parvati), and Buddha statues. You can also buy Ritual paraphernalia (Wicks lamp, Puja Kalash, Cymbals, and Puja Flag) on the website. All these statues and items have been made with a lot of care and attention, giving them a flawless finish. Their fine carving detail represents the rich tradition of India.
