A well-made Nataraja sculpture is a collectible. It is a complex composition, both in terms of the outer aesthetic and the inner meaning. Few cultural symbols are imbued with as much divinity as the image of the wrathful dancing Shiva. The Natraj murti that you see on this page is a particularly expressive reproduction of this quintessential Indian cultural symbol.
A richly detailed, pure brass Shiva Nataraja statue. The stance of the limbs, the mudra of the hands, the bringing down of Apasmara, and snakes emerging from every part of the Lord’s anatomy - these are all in keeping with the traditional, textual iconography of the dancing Shiva. A powerful gaze emanates from those gorgeously engraved eyes, the locks flaying about a superbly angular face. Particularly expressive features of the face.
However, the most striking aspect of this Nataraja murti is the symbol of the aum. It is contained within the prabhavali (aureole) that frames the tandava-wreaking Mahadeva. A seemingly simple detail that adds to the divine quality of the work.
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.
