Lord Ganesha is the most widely loved baala-deva (child-deity) of the Hindu pantheon. His childlike qualities, such as innocence and wisdom and generosity with blessings, endear Him to the truly devoted. The murti that you see on this page is sculpted from pure brass and depicts the Lord in dance motion.
In the posterior hands of the chaturbhujadhari are a goad and a noose. These are weapons He wields upon the adharmee’s mind. The anterior hands are in the same mudras (abhaya va gajahasta) as those of Nataraja, His father. To the left of dancing Ganesha, the sash cascades all the way down to the pistil of the lotus-shaped pedestal He dances on. A foot planted firmly on the same, the other raised high in the air. On a corner of the plinth is a little mouse, His vahana.
This dancing Ganesha murti comes in a wide variety of colour finish. Some of them like the Antique Brass and the Gold are monotone, while Sindoori and Patina are a striking bitone.
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.
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.
