The lady with dholak (a drum-like instrument) is placed on an upturned lotus, embellished with colorful inlay work. From her intricate ornamentation and perfect form, we can gather that she is a celestial nymph, who performs in the court of the gods- “Deva-sabha”.

She has a distinctively elaborate hairstyle, common in the sculptures of beautiful women as seen on the walls of the Hindu shrines. The richness of her wardrobe is highlighted by the turquoise inlay pieces used in her torso, contrasted tastefully by the red color on her lower body garment. With her feet placed in the posture of a classical Indian dancer, she plays the dholak that hangs from her neck, attached to a fine brass chain.

The use of vibrant inlay work against the lustrous physique of the lady in brass has added to the animation of this statue. With her face sculpted naturalistically, this brass lady with dholak statue highlights the ethnic beauty of the Indian woman. A hint of a smile on the lady’s face, her fingers that are about to touch the dholak, the pleats of her dhoti dangling over the dholak, and the placing of her legs have made this brass statue come to life. Carved in a rounded manner, this handmade brass lady with dholak will invigorate your space instantly. 

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.


  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.



  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.

  • 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.
