Lord Hanuman is the Hindu god of strength, celibacy, knowledge and bhakti; he serves as the best companion of god Rama and the central character of Ramayana. Here in this sculpture Hanuman stands on an inverted lotus pedestal and thick floral carved prabhavali that enhances his essence of divinity. Lord Hanuman’s dedicated and selfless service to his guru, Lord Rama is very well known by the entire universe; garbed in a short length pleated dhoti with his sacred weapon gada in his hand, he teaches all to work for good and abolish the evil.
One of the most striking aspect of the sculpture is the distinctive carving of his crown that reminds us of South Indian temple structures. If you look carefully at the sculpture, you will realize that not only Hanuman himself, but everything also associated with him in this sculpture focuses on the mantra of ‘good over evil’, as on careful observation, you will realize that even the enchanting prabhavali behind the Lord is in the shape of Hanuman’s weapon gada (mace), sleek at the bottom and gumbad like while ascending upward.
