Vishwakarma is an esteemed deity in Hinduism, associated with divine
craftsmanship and architecture. Adorned with a majestic Kirtimukha throne in
this large wooden sculpture, he symbolizes excellence, creativity, and prosperity.
According to Hindu Scriptures,
he is regarded as the divine architect and builder of the universe. Worshiping
Lord Vishwakarma is believed to bring immense benefits, including enhanced
skills, success in endeavors, and accident protection. His origins trace back
to the Rigveda,
where he is mentioned as the deity responsible for creating sacred tools and
weapons for gods. Artisans, architects, and craftsmen are invoked by his
benevolent presence seeking his divine blessings for skillful craftsmanship and

“Devon ke Dev Mahadev” means “Lord
Shiva” and has been depicted in this spectacular piece of art in his delightful
form. Shiva is seen standing on a pedestal podium with his right hand held up

a sacred alloy of five metals, and demonstrates the ancient art form of Madhuchista
Vidhana. This sculpture of “Mahadev” is a symbol of reverence and spirituality,
inviting people to connect with the divine presence of Lord Shiva.
A single glance at this skilfully smithed pendant is enough to confirm its South Indian temple jewellery origin. When a piece of ornamentation is called temple jewellery, as opposed to spiritual jewellery (astrological prescriptions) and bridal jewellery, it means that it was designed to adorn the idols housed inside temples. South India is the home of temples - the most ancient and awe-inspiring of Indian temples are to be found in its gullies and recesses - and also the home of temple jewellery. The pieces are divine regalia, and have an ethereal charm about them, irrespective of whether it's in the make or the finish or the quintessential motifs. This temple jewellery pendant is a fine example of the same.
It is chunky, relatively large, and designed to complete the necklaces of the larger idols. Cast in sterling silver and finished with a delicate gold colour, it would surely jazz up the entire jewellery ensemble it is added to. Temple jewellery dominates the jewellery boxes of classical dancers and even everyday women who want to achieve a particular look. This pendant would make for a great addition to yours, what with the sampoorna (complete) Shiva-parivar smithed onto the frontal section. There is Parvati right next to Shiva on Their trusty Nandi, flanked by their gorgeous sons, Ganesha and Kartika, on Their respective vahanas; and another seated Ganesha figurine dangling from underneath the centre of the elongated pedestal that supports the deities. Zooming in on each figurine would enable you to truly appreciate the workmanship and labour that have gone into this statement pendant.
Embodiment of ‘Karuna’,
Buddha’s message has traveled the world and left a deep impact on its
introspection. This Panchaloha
bronze idol of Gautam Buddha is seated under the finely branched Bodhi
tree, on a Lotus in Padmasana, eyes closed in meditation - his one hand is
placed on another in relaxation. On the sides are his two principle disciples -
and Arhat Moggallana,
depicted under the Naga shade.
This aventurine Buddha would be an unusual addition to your home or office decor. Carved from its mineral red variation, it depicts the monk seated on a high lotus throne and steeped in samadhi (yogic contemplation). Given the ratio of the height and width of the composition, it could be said to be a longline sculpture.
Aventurine is a kind of quartz that is known for its translucence and natural glisten. It is called aventurescence, a quality that is somewhat muted in this variation of the medium. The murti is defined by smooth lines and consistent engravings introduced into the aventurine. The aventurescence is best brought out in the relatively smooth sections of the sculpture’s surface area, such as the upper torso of the seated figure and the neatly defined features of His face.
This seated Buddha sculpture in aventurine quartz is perfectly symmetrical. The pleats of His raiment, the petals of the traditional lotus-shaped throne; the composure of the divine countenance.
One of the most
prevalent gestures among Buddha statues is Buddha in the dhyana mudra stance,
with his fingers crossed and thumb tips united in a perfect triangular angle,
denoting his dhyana mudra. Buddha is the one who has gained wisdom and is in
charge of disseminating enlightenment knowledge across the world. This depiction of Buddha in dhyana mudra is an imitation from the 4th to 5th centuries. During the great Mahayana congregation of Harshvardhana in the 7th century, life-size metal representations of Buddha, including those of gold, were carried in procession.
The stately, seated Buddha. Limbs gathered in ardhapadmasana, the hands in signature contemplative mudra. A lotus bloom of multitudinous petals beneath Him. A perfectly regal form, and a face so irresistibly blissful that one may not gaze away.
The Buddha sculpture that you see on this page is a substantially large composition. It is sculpted entirely from bronze, the pure quality of which explains the burnt gold colour finish with green overtones. Behind the seated figure is a structure resembling the back of a chariot (note the simhayali), which is symbolic of that fateful chariot ride Shakyamuni Siddhartha took into the city.
Sachamara disciples on either side behind the chariot back. Sheshanaga hoods rising above their heads, indicative of Lord Vishnu (of whom Buddha is an avatara). At the zenith of this Buddha sculpture is a densely and skilfully engraved section resembling a chariot top.
