Gopi or Gopika is the female counterpart of Gopa- one who keeps Gau (cows) and forms
the Vrindavan retinue of Sri Krishna, frolicking with him in the grooves of
Brija during Rasa and indulging in loving quarrels with their beloved on
numerous occasions. The love of Gopis for Krishna is eternal and pure and lives
as the crown jewel of Krishna legends in Hindu tradition. Their proximity to
Krishna, the warmth of their relationship with him, and the boundless love they
received from the dark-skinned incarnation of Sri Vishnu made the most prolific
sages and devotees feel envious. Stunning in beauty and ceaselessly devoted to
Krishna, one of the Gopi-Vrinda (group of Gopis) is present in this marvelous
brass Gopi statue, carrying pots of Makhan (butter) for Makhanchor
(butter-thief) Sri Krishna.
The gopi has a lithesome form whose allure is accentuated by
her amazing Tribhanga (triple bent) posture and the curving scarf that falls on
her side, framing her gorgeous physique. Her hair is tied in a smooth bun,
adorned with Maangtika (head ornament), Karnaphool (circular flower-shaped
earrings), Haar (necklace), Baajubanda (armband), a tasseled Mekhala (girdle)
and anklets. Intricately patterned dhoti (lower body garment) and matching
breast cloth is worn by the brass Gopi, clinging to her form to reveal her
natural beauty. While her body is positioned in a dynamic posture, the brass
Gopi statue carries an extraordinary stillness, in how she supports the pot on
her waist and head. The image is placed on a decorated brass platform,
embellished in a rounded manner, just like the statue of the Gopika to give you
a fulfilling aesthetic experience.
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.
