Anjaneya is an epithet of Lord Hanuman. It is an expression of His identity as the child (‘eya’) of Anjana. Anjaneya, the finest soldier of the vanara-sena, shines like the brightest jewel in the necklace of Ramayana characters because of His sheer devotion (‘bhakti’) to Lord Rama.
The stance of Anjaneya that you see on this page is of the bhakta (devotee). The first sign is the head of the gada, His signature weapon, turned downwards. The other hand is raised in gentle blessing. The feet brought respectfully together; the tail resting next to the same.
The extensive inlay-work sets this sculpture apart from your run-of-the-mill Hanuman murtis. Richly coloured bits of superior-quality resin on the rim of His crown, the blouse and loincloth, and the multiple tiers of the plinth beneath His feet.
How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?
Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.
Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.
In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth.
