The god of Ayurveda and a keeper of sound health, Lord Dhanvantari is an important incarnation of Lord Vishnu and is said to have emanated from the milky ocean that was churned by gods and demons in pursuit of the immortal nectar. He is worshipped as a benevolent healer in Hinduism, formed here in mesmerized brass carvings of realistic gestures.
He stands here on a three layered lotus plinth with his long, stout and strong four hands ejected straight in utter elegance, carrying his insignias, conch and the bowl of nectar (ambrosia) in the upper hands and scriptures and some medicinal herbs in the lower hands. He is portrayed as a pleasant and handsome looking individual with an expression of tranquillity on his face.
Dhanvantari is considered as a remover of fears and diseases from the face of humanity to promote happiness and well-being; adorned here in charming and bright yellow-gold dhoti tied aptly over his legs, a stole that falls at ease from his shoulders and a kamarband ornamented with a beautiful long broch in the centre; decked up in lustrous jewels of multiple necklaces, brightly polished earrings, bracelets, armlets and a long garland of flowers. The flower haloed crown engraved beautifully in various patterns glows on his smooth hair locks.
