Krishna, the divine duo is described in the Hindu sacred texts and represented
in iconography as an inseparable couple, forever engrossed in the heavenly
affection they have for one another. As the incarnation Vishnu and Lakshmi on
earth, Radha and Krishna perform various loving Leela (plays) with each other,
all the while teaching their devotees the valuable lessons of purity of love
The couple in this brass statue is seated on a boat shaped like a Hamsa or a swan- a bird representative of purity and love. The elongated neck of the bird forms one side of the boat, while on the other side, its feathers create charming folds, held together by a canopy on the top. The elegant body of the swan gives an appropriate asana (pedestal) to Radha and Krishna. Decked in the most appealing jewellery and attire, the pair is resting comfortably, enjoying each other’s company. Radha lovingly holds her beloved Krishna’s right hand, who gently touches her chin with his left hand, wanting to be the only receiver of her loving attention. Both of them create vivid imagery of romance in brass! The flows shown in the uttariya (scarf-like garment worn on the upper body) of Radha and Krishna convey a sense of movement, reminding us of the boat ride that they are relishing.
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.
