The holy Mother Goddess in Hinduism, Parvati is the gentle
and nurturing form of the supreme Goddess Adi Parashakti and the consort of the
destroyer of Trinity, Lord Shiva. This brass statue of the Goddess depicts her
as standing in a slight bent posture on a double lotus plinth; carved with
smooth edges and petals chiselled beautifully. The dual shade of gold and brown
complements with the elegant figurine of Goddess Parvati. She is carved here
with a fully blooming lotus in her right hand, hence named as Padmadharini (one
holding a lotus). The body curves and sharp facial expressions indicate the
sculptor’s marvellous skills of perfection.
Zoom in to the image for a clear view of the slender legs of Parvati veiled by a richly carved ankle length dhoti having horizontal patterns chiselled in designs of luxury and ethnic patterns. The multiple layered kamarband is ornated with small and sleek golden colored brochs that contrast with her gold neck choker and the royal gold hued body. The perfectly fitted vest that shapes beautifully along the chest and the floral carved sleeves are indicative of the carver’s precision for his work.
Goddess Parvati is sculpted with the smiling lips, sharp pointed and sleek nose and a bindi on her forehead reflecting her feminist aura. The long multiple layered crown that she adorns is inspired by the South Indian style temple carvings, filled with intricate patterns and precised carves. Inspite of its amazing and creative carvings, the super glossy texture catches the attention of the eyes.
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.
