Sculpted from brass, the dancing figure is mounted on a plinth that is almost one-third the height of the murti. On the back of the avidya-roopi Apasmara (the grotesque personification of ignorance) dances the king (‘raja’) of the performing arts (‘nata’), the resplendent Nataraja. His all-powerful tandava has the power to annihilate everything (flames, in the left posterior hand) and give birth anew (damroo, in the right posterior). His locks are flaying about His head from the momentum of His tandava. A crown the shape of a multihooded snake sits on His head. The predominance of snakes - from in His hair to wound around His limbs and waist and neck - is a signature element of the Nataraja iconography.

A perfectly circular aureole frames the slender figure engaged in tandava. With the openwork and the ring of flames emanating from the outer edge, its style is very much in keeping with the Brhadeshvara idiom.

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.


  • Another way is to cleanse the statue with mild soap, warm water, and a cotton cloth. You must go to every inch of the statue and even to the crevices and cracks. After this, clean the article with a dry towel to wipe off pools of water left on the surface.


  • 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.
