An embodiment of wisdom, intelligence and the master of all, lord Ganapati is worshipped as the god of beginnings all over the universe. Riddhi (intellect) and siddhi (spiritual power) are his consorts. Ganesha’s figure is an archetype, loaded with multiple meanings and symbolism which express a state of perfection and a means of obtaining it. This superfine and large brass statue is painted in an absolute luxury of crystalline green shade and decorated with tinges of pink and gold. He sits here on a highly carved cushion, topped with a sheet of lotus petal carvings and spiral rounds at the circumference.
The carver has chosen for a temple style throne for his lord, with the base depicting a panel of five musical Ganeshas playing dholak, sitar, veena, flute and table respectively. The richly carved throne is connected by a Kirtimukha arch at the top having ethnic patterns chiseled all over. The left temple pillar is decorated with the beautiful goddess Lakshmi and right with goddess Saraswati, standing in their iconic gesture and mudra. Ganesha’s platform is covered with a kalash on the right and his vahana, Mooshak playing a trumpet in his Lord’s arrival on the left.
This sculpture is highly ornated with stylized multiple necklaces, bracelets, earrings and a densely chiseled crown glorifying on his head; the jeweled trunk curls towards the left and Chaturbhuja carries a laddoo and the broken tusk in his anterior hands and pasa and noose in the posterior hands. One of the distinctive features of this sculpture is the equally carved back of Ganesha’s temple throne; zoom in to the back image, you will be astonished by the extensive floral embroidery of the base and arch of his royal seat.
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.
