Lord Hanuman stands as the finest example of human excellence. He is the greatest of Rama-devotees, having remained in this world for as long as the Ramayana is recited, even after the rest of the characters left for parloka (the subsequent realm of existence). He is the son of Anjanadevi and Vayudeva, and tutored by none other than Sooryadeva Himself. Mischievous as He was as a child (the signature jawline that lends Him His name is the result of a punishing blow dealt to Him by an angered Indra), He grew up to be a yogi of the highest order, having attained all eight of the classical ashta-siddhis of yoga. It is this roopa of His that has been depicted in this wood-cut sculpture, wherein He is seated in a poorna-padmasana with His palms brought together in the dhyana muda and the eyes shut (the gaze is directed inwards).
The beauty of Ramayan's brightest character has been captured in this sculpture with great skill. The handsome face of the Lord is framed by a semi-circular halo, the glamour of which has been conveyed with multiple tiers of engraving. Broad shoulders and muscular arms give way to a well-defined torso followed by limbs of divine strength. Pearly shringar and a dhoti of silk, the pleats of which are spread on the pedestal right beneath where He is seated, grace His form. The three-tiered pedestal is the most unusual aspect of this composition. The topmost tier is engraved with lotus petals; the middle tier has inverted lotus petals superimposed with His signature weapon, the goad; and the third tier has a flower in full bloom at the centre.
