This sculpture is an unconventional depiction of the Lord Ganesha. The son of Shiva is usually the image of the adorable baal-deva, seated with His chubby child’s belly protruding before Him and a pot of laddoos at His disposal. This is one conforms to the iconography of your regular Hindu deva - standing on an inverted lotus pedestal, His haloed head towering at quite a distance from the ground, and a gaze that is wise and mature directed straight ahead.
The pot-belly, which is within moments of bursting forth were it not for the snake-knot, is intact in the iconography. So is the Indian sweetmeatball that He cradles in the left of His anterior arms. Concealed in the palm of the right which He raises in blessing is the legendary broken tusk. From the conchs in His posterior arms to the world of shringar on His person and the spiked halo behind His head, the image of Lord Ganesha is replete with characteristic detail.
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.
