Starting from the left, Ganesha with its trunk towards left and diamond eyes is Chintamani Vinayak, located in Theur district. Ganesha got back his precious jewels from Guna and hence was given this name; next is Vighneshwar Vinayak of Ozar who got his name when the demon Vighnasur pleaded Ganesha for mercy on being defeated and asked that his name to be taken before Ganesha’s name; the third is carved unlike the usual iconography of Mayureshwar, who is riding a peacock. Moreshwar temple is one of the important and unique spots in this pilgrimage having a Nandi at the entrance; next in row has its trunk to the left and is carved a little different than other Ashtavinayak Ganeshas in not so well defined design. This temple is Girijatmaj (Parvati’s son) and is located amidst a cave complex of Buddhist origin.

The distinctive crowned Ganesha idol sits on a throne carved like a cypress tree. The shape of the idol bears a striking resemblance with the mountain that forms the backdrop of Ballaleshwar temple. This is the only temple where Ganesha bears its name as ‘Ballal Vinayak’ on the name of his devotee; the next idol is the only one with its trunk turned towards right and is supposed to be a very powerful avatar for devotees. It is located in the Siddhivinayak temple of Siddhatek surrounded by thick foliage of babul trees; second last in the row is Mahotkat Ganesha idol of Mahaganapati temple situated in Ranjangaon and dates back to Peshwa times; last in the panel is Varada Vinayak (giver of bounty and success) who sits in an immersed position and is a constant companion of an oil lamp that is said to be burning continuously since 1892.

All the idols are carved with clear striated trunks and various lines joining together to form perfect Ganesha features.



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.
