Lord Hanuman is known for his perseverance, strength and
true devotion to Lord Rama. Worshipping Hanuman is a way of being remembered
for selfless devotion to God and for complete surrender of ego. When Lakshman
was wounded by Meghnath, Ravana’s eldest son, it was Lord Hanuman who went
alone to Mount Sumeru, situated in Mount Dronagiri Himalayan range to fetch the
medicinal sanjeevani, a magical herb that can cure nervous system disorders.
This white marble sculpture is an accurate depiction of the same, where Lord
Hanuman is carrying the entire mountain that retrieves sanjeevani herb in his
left hand, while the right one holds his iconic weapon, mace (gada), all
decorated in gold and embellished with red and green stones.
You may zoom in to the picture and appreciate the facial
carvings and naturalistic features of the deity, shown with delicate eyes and a
heart warming smile. The formation and stance of Lord Hanuman reflects his
innate strength and power along with that gentle nature of selflessness. He has
his left leg supported on a rock and right is stretched on the pedestal
maintaining the body posture. Embellished in luxurious gold jewels of multiple
sized necklaces studded in red and green stones respectively and a royal crown
that glorifies his head forming an orange and gold aureole behind.
Hanuman is garbed here in a short red dhoti and a blue
silken kamarband that partially overlaps it, along with a mauve stole decorated
with gold zari motifs as a sign of his royalness. This entire stone sculpture
is shaped with a single piece of white marble by expert artisans, whose laborious
time is successfully executed in this Hanuman sculptural art. Lord’s tail goes
up from behind, slightly visible from behind the gada.
