Description

Hanuman is a part-simian part human figure. Here he sits in a gesture of supplication with his hands in the namaskar mudra. This gesture is a simple act with a profound meaning. It is made by bringing together both palms of the hands before the heart, and lightly bowing the head. It signifies a sense of submitting oneself to another, with complete humility, like Hanuman did for Rama, even risking his own life to search for Sita, Rama's wife. Hanuman finally went on to play a crucial role in ultimate battle for the retrieval of Sita. Indeed it was due to his unquestioning support that Rama was able to win her back.

Hanuman is wearing a short waist cloth whose central pleat lies in front of him. His head is adorned with an elaborate crown and his ears hung with a pair of globular earrings. In consistence with his submissive posture, his mace lies by his side. His long tail coils around his right side and lies parallel to his mace. It is mentioned in the Ramayana that Hanuman had a tail like Indra's banner and it could make a noise similar to that of a vajra. The same text describes him as glorious as the sun. Indeed the artist here has invested him with a golden luminescence reminiscent of the sun.

Hanuman's strength is greatly extolled in the scriptures. Even when still an infant, he had managed to intimidate the sun. Here too he is strongly built. This image thus epitomizes his character at the very best - humble, yet powerful.

Ancient iconographic texts state that the look and posture of an image of Hanuman should be such as to evoke compassion and to bring into prominence the ever-ready willingness of this faithful messenger to carry out the orders of his master. This piece of art scores on all these considerations.
