It is a standing figure of Lord Hanuman, His palms joined together in namaskaram. He stands on a richly engraved green and yellow pedestal. The complexion of His body is a bright, rugged tan. It befits the yogic musculature of His form, as revealed rather than concealed by the ornamental loincloth that reaches mid-thigh. A number of blue and green sashes descend laterally from His tall, erect form. Kusuma-kundalas and a multi-tiered crown completes the Lord’s shringar. Note how the face has been done with a rudimentary attention to detail, given that it is not an icon but a temple sculpture.
The most unique aspect of this composition is His tail. He is swishing it behind His back, high above His head, forming an aureole-like curve around His haloed head.
