Lord Perumal is the Sri Vishnu Parabrahman of South India. In Tamil, the predominant Dravidian language, the suffix ‘mala’ conveys a dusky complexion, an unmistakable characteristic of the dashavataras. The Permul murti that you see on this page captures the great beauty of this dusky, even-toned deity of Hinduism.


Long, slender form. Imbued with every imaginable detail of attire and adornment, carved with the greatest care and perfect symmetry down the midline. A consistent monotone the colour of cool, molten gold. This Perumal figure has been handpicked from the studios of Swamimalai for the complexity and aesthetic of its finish - note the multitudinous hems of Perumal’s dhoti, the dynamic stance of miniature Garuda afore the plinth - as well as the unflinching precision of handiwork.


Speaking of handiwork, this is a panchaloha murti, made from an alloy of gold, silver, copper, zinc, and iron. Given the sheer proportion of detail of Perumal’s face and form, it has been cast with great care and skill via traditional lost-wax technique (madhuchista vidhana, in the terms of the shastras).
