legends of Sri Krishna and Sri Radha- the manifestations of Sri Vishnu and Maa
Lakshmi, we find an ethereal oneness between the two of them. For the devotee
showered by the ecstasy of Radha-Krishna’s divine love, they are not two
individuals, but one. “Aikya”- unity in every aspect is the closest we can get
to describing the relationship between Radha and Krishna.
elaborate brass Krishna-Radha statue, the duo appears to be in blissful
harmony- both heavenly in appearance, both a timeless reminder of the divinity
that resides in pure love. The statues of Radha and Krishna are framed by high
raising brass arches, decorated with various Lilas- godly plays of Krishna,
intricately carved on the arches that look like elephant tusks.
magnificent Radha-Krishna brass murtis are embellished tastefully by vibrant
inlay work in red, green, blue, and turquoise. Apart from the murli- flute in
Krishna’s hand, and Radha Ji’s hand placed on her bangles, they are made to
look lovingly alike, a moving reminder of their inseparability. From their
distinctive crowns to the fineries that adorn them, and the lotus-shaped
platform on which they stand- each part of this brass statue is pleasingly
colorful, painted with the vivacious hues of the affection between Radha and
Krishna. The floral vines that sprout from the bodies of the divine couple
bring grandeur to their presence in this brass composite.
On the top
of the arch sits “Mahadeva”- Shiva, filling the image with his benevolence. Such
images of Shiva in Vaishnava shrines represent the beauty of Hinduism, in which
Shiva and Vishnu (Krishna in this brass) are not opposite but one. A lovely
“Ghanta”- bell hangs from the mouth of Kirtimukha (face of glory)- turning this
brass Krishna Radha statue into a complete shrine, ready to grace your home
with the Prema (love) and Bhakti (devotion) of Krishna and Radha.
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.
