Music is an integral aspect of life in rural India. Given how vast the subcontinent is, a wide variety of folk music has emerged from its numerous rural pockets. The ensemble that you see on this page depicts a band of four young ladies practicing the music that stems from their roots. Two of them are playing string instruments, one of which features a swan sculpture at the end of its long neck (these are rudimentary versions of the veena, a classical Indian instrument). The remaining two are playing a wind instrument and a percussion instrument, respectively.
These four musicians are from the same village or at least from neighboring villages. Having grown together in pursuit of the art that binds them, they now rival each other in terms of beauty and charm. They are seated with their legs gathered afore them, their super-short dhotis revealing rather than concealing the gorgeous musculature. A wisp of golden-colored fabric is wound around the torso and brought over the left shoulder, cut so low that it exposes a vital part of the bosom. With their gigantic karnakundalas and necklaces and the clasps of adornment on their supple limbs, each of these musicians are the very Roopa of the quintessential Hindu Devi.
A blissful composure characterizes their countenance. Half-shut eyes, a subtle smile on the corners of their lotus-shaped mouths. Their torsos are swaying delicately to the music of their instruments. A series of dynamic figurines, such an ensemble would be a superb addition to the decor of any tasteful home.
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. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
