His torso has been sculpted to perfection - the chest is tilted to one side in a pose of divine dance, while His belly has the perfect shape of a pot. It is held in place by a snake because He once burst His belly after having a (godly) number of laddoes. Note the beauty of His deep navel. He is wearing a short dhoti (like little boys are dressed by their mothers so that it does not get in the way of their play), the sash of which reaches down to the ground. A few chunky ornaments - necklaces, amulets, and anklets - have been sculpted with great skill against His baby skin.
The Lord's spired crown is typical of the way elephants are decorated in India. His curvaceous elephant's ears and the striated trunk, curled around a conch, have been carved with considerable workmanship. The Lord is dancing upon an upturned-lotus pedestal, on the edges of which is His vahan, the mouse. It is looking up at Him with folded palms, taking in the divinity of His dance.
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.
