Contrary to his usual dynamic posture, Hanuman here is shown poised in meditation. Indeed one of Hanuman's epithets is Yogachara, 'the master of yoga.' Wearing a short-patterned loin-cloth, he is adorned with necklaces of pearls, elaborate earrings, and an intricate three-tiered crown. This figure epitomizes Hanuman's character at his very best - powerful, as his bulging muscles show, and humble, as exemplified in his calm, relaxed, and unpretentious meditative demeanour. Here is the monkey general adored by countless devotees for the impossible feat he performed - locating Sita by jumping across the ocean to Lanka, giving her a message form Rama, and returning to fight the final battle. He is the one whom devotees beseech for help when confronting difficulties:
Lord who achieved the impossible
before you how can one speak of the impossible?
O messenger of Rama, O ocean of mercy
make my task achievable, O Lord.
(A popular Sanskrit prayer to Hanuman)

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.
