12" The Dashamukha Warrior-King, Ravana in Brass | Handmade | Made In India


The Dokra Damar tribes of the Eastern Delta region are master metalsmiths who derive their craft from the traditions of the Indus Valley Civilisation. The handheld standing figurine that you see on this page is a fine example of this traditional tribal craft. It depicts the dashamukha Lord Ravana, the ill-starred ruler of Lanka, the most striking aspect of whose persona are His ten (‘dasha’) faces (‘mukha’).

A non-ferrous alloy cast using the lost-wax technique, this work bears the characteristics of typical Dokra metalsmithing. Abstract proportion of line and form, a rudimentary silhouette, and hints of rough-hewn lattice-work. The ten heads of Ravana form a circlet at the top of a long neck. The torso and pelvis feature a great deal of lattice-work, a staple element in an authentic Dhokra composition.

The feet of Ravana are clad in traditional Asian footwear for men, the pointed toe-region featuring a jaunty curve. The upper part of the torso is flanked by a multitude of close-clasped arms, the anteriormost ones wielding a sword and a shield. This independent Ravana iconography pays homage to His superior prowess as a warrior and an asura of high standing, oft-overlooked facts in view of His villainous role in the Ramayana.

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.


  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.


  • Another way is to cleanse the statue with mild soap, warm water, and a cotton cloth. You must go to every inch of the statue and even to the crevices and cracks. After this, clean the article with a dry towel to wipe off pools of water left on the surface.


  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.

  • 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. 


Brass idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses are especially known for their intricate and detailed work of art. Nepalese sculptures are famous for small brass idols portraying Buddhist deities. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
