Devi Parvati, the wife of Shiva-Mahadeva and the Saumya (calm) aspect of warring
goddesses Mahakali and Durga is presented in this brass bust statue in her most divinely exquisite form, a visual reminder of
her epithets such as Tripurasundari (the most beautiful woman in three realms), Gauri (the fair
maiden), Lalita (the beautiful one), Meenakshi (fish-eyed woman).
This brass Devi Parvati
bust depicts the goddess in a pleasant mood, her head slightly tilted to her
right and a tranquil smile swept across her face. Her long tresses are knotted
in a high raising Jata-mukuta (mukuta or crown made of Jata or locks of hair)
embellished with multiple jeweled bands that hold her curling hair in place,
giving this brass Parvati bust an impressive appearance. The curls of Devi’s
hairdo frame her glistening forehead which is decorated with a round Bindi and
beautified by the arched eyebrows delineated by two parallel incised lines. Her
admirable eyes are shaped like two lotus buds in between which is placed a
sharp nose and below it is her delicate lips. Goddess Parvati’s face is round
and impeccably polished and is highlighted by the large Kundala (round
earrings) that adorn her ears. On her neck, Devi Parvati wears two tasteful
bejeweled necklaces whose stylistically curling strings fall on her shoulders
elegantly. A twisted Yajnopavita (sacred thread) falls over goddess Parvati’s
left shoulder and disappears in the space between the hints of her elevated
bosoms. Emanating a luxuriant blissfulness from her countenance, this brass
Devi Parvati bust is a symbol of the great goddess's primordial potencies that
allure Shiva and cause the beginning of Srishti (creation).
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.
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.
