The transcendental demigod Lord Ganesha in his lalitasana perches on a multi-layered stone pedestal decorated with sleek golden borders on the edges. The calm composure of this loving Vighnaharta soothes our inner soul with satisfaction and brightness; attired in a combination of yellow and green finery and glittering gold ornaments that decorate his divine self in superfine ways.
Chaturbhuja holds his favourite sweetmeat, one in his trunk and the other ready to follow in his anterior left hand; right one blesses the worshippers in abhaya mudra to be fearless and live happily; other two rear hands carry his iconic implements depicting him to be always ready to defeat the evils for a loving and prosperous mankind. The auspicious white color highlights the purity, love, peace and harmony that compliments to the cosmic nature of his deity.
The eminent haloed crown and the supremely structured ears with the intense lotus eyes enhances the devotion and honour of the Godhead; auspicious symbol of ‘Om’ and the circular yellow-red Shaivite tilak seems to eminate the fruitful amicable and peaceful rays. As the title says, ‘Temple Ganesha’, this sculpture carved out exotically out of a single piece of marble, is one of the best works of art to be kept in any temple or other worship places.
How to clean and maintain marble statues?
Marble has been a preferred material for sculptors and artists for more than a thousand years. It is a rock that undergoes metamorphism which causes recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains. Marble comes in various colors, designs, and dimensions. Pure white marble is the most preferred type of marble for making sculptures and statues since time immemorial. White marble is especially used for sculpting stone monumental sculptures since ancient times. The natural shine and luster of the carbonate crystals of white marble give a lavish and beautiful appearance to the statue.
Marble stone statues are highly durable and can even withstand harsh weather conditions without getting corroded, therefore, they can be kept indoors or outdoors without getting damaged or weathered. Although these statues can last for many decades, their regular care and cleaning are essential to increase their longevity and beautiful appearance.
Marble statues need periodical cleaning to maintain their flawless look. However, harsh and deep cleaning can result in making the statue look dull. If your marble statue is withering away, it is recommended to take the help of a professional cleaner. Marble is a delicate material and therefore needs proper care.
