While the sun god in most cultures is revered to have created the sun itself, the Soorya Devata of India is the presiding deity over the sun. He has not created the sun but is Himself a projection of the brilliance and potency of the sun. It is to Him that devotees turn whilst in need of the sun to have mercy on them. Lord Soorya has been described in the Puranas to have a striking iconography - a chariot drawn by seven powerful horses and a great deal of personal splendor - which has been captured with great skill in the murti that you see on this page.

The seven horses of Lord Soorya stand for the seven meters of Sanskrit prosody, which are Gayatri, Brihati, Ushnih, Jagati, Trishtubha, Anushtubha, and Pankti. Aruna, His charioteer, gathers in His hands the reins to all of their necks. The Lord Himself is dvibhujadhari, possessed of (‘dhari’) two (‘dvi’) arms (‘bhuja’), in one of which He holds a radiant golden lotus. This chhavi (image) is in keeping with His iconography as expounded in the Brhat Samhita. An image of the sun itself, with a countenance engraved into its circular form, constitutes the halo behind the crown of Lord Soorya.


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.
