A dreamy Krishna figure, fashioned from pure brass. Tall and lithe, His stance is of the tribhanga murari, which means that the body is jutting out (‘bhanga’) at three (‘tri’) different junctures - the shoulders, the hips, and the feet - and that He holds a flute (‘murari’). It makes for a distinctive, highly characteristic silhouette.
Birthed by Devaki-Vasudeva, the son of Nanda-Yashoda is the most charming and beloved of the Vishnu-avataras. Poised upon a compact, ornately engraved pedestal, this Lord Krishna figure is laden with ample shringar. Anklets on His lotus-like feet. A richly embroidered dhoti of silk that accentuates the slender musculature of His limbs, held an inch below the navel by a girdle of layered gold.
The handsomely sculpted torso clothed in streams of bejewelled necklaces and a garland of fresh marigolds swaying down the midline of His frame. Statement amulets and bangles and chunky wristlets down the length of His curvaceous arms. Finally, a haloed crown carved with the finest proportion of symmetry and detail.
Each aspect of this standing Lord Krishna sculpture has been executed with a great deal of skill and shraddha (roughly translated to devotion). The irresistibly handsome features of His face that define a serene composure. Superbly sculpted fingers in a gentle grip around the flute. The realistic curves of the soles of His feet. Such a work of art is not only a result of but also inspires a world of transcendental devotion.
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.
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.
