He rests upon the pistil of a gigantic bloom of lotus. A leg is raised upon the seat whilst the other one dangles, a stance called lalitasana that is to be found in the seated iconographies of most Hindu and Buddhist deities. Unlike the traditional robe of buddhas and bodhisattvas, Lord Avalokiteshvara here is clad in a silk dhoti and minimal adornments. A long-stemmed close-petalled lotus is in His left hands, while the right hands are gathered in divine mudras (He is chaturbhujadhari, one who is possessed of four arms)
This padmasana (lotus-throne) seated composition of Lord Avalokiteshvara would be a monotone composition if not for the scintillating bits of gold colour on the same. The base charcoal blue hue is set off by the hints of gold that mark out the adornments on His body, the embellishments on His crown, and the edges of the lotus petals. Finally, a floral discoid of gold is sculpted at the midline of the pedestal, from the arc of which emerges a thick leafy vine.
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.
