Yoga has been the greatest gift to the world which has been embraced by all around the globe. Sage Patanjali is popularly known as the ‘Father of Modern Yoga’, although he didn’t invent yoga, it was already there, he just assimilated its various forms into a well defined system now known as Yoga Sutras. He is regarded as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu’s Adi Shesha (symbol of awareness), the holy serpent on which Vishnu reclines in Yoga Nidra. This brass statue depicts Maharishi Patanjali settled on a lotus plate kept on a circular pedestal supported by three stylishly carved legs.
Patanjali stands in Anjali (Namaste) mudra and the posterior hands hold graciously carved implements- chakra and conch in his respective hands. He is adorned in a lavish kamarband and the legs are covered by the thick realistically structured three coils of the seven hooded serpent carved in intensive chisels. Patanjali is embellished in luxurious jewels that almost cover the upper half of his body; the long crown that glorifies on his head is formed in superb multiple layers, all carved in South Indian temple type designs.
