An abstract, almost tribal visual rendition of Lord Rudra. Rudra is another name for Shiva. The murti that you see on this page depicts the Lord with five additional faces sculpted across His naked anatomy: two across the chest, one superimposed on the loins, another couple on each mid-limb.
The fact that it is Rudra is clear from the presence of numerous snakes in the iconography. One with three hoods bares its fangs above the turban-like crown. Another pair, each with two hoods, rises behind either shoulder. The scales on their underbellies count amongst the minimal detail introduced into the sculpture.
The pedestal upon which stands Rudra is of distinctly tribal origin. It is ornately decorated with engravings on the brass, and resembles a makeshift chariot for devotees to carry Him around.
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.
