The mighty Garuda in a selfless, devoted stance. Vahana of Lord Vishnu, Garuda is an anthropomorphic deity and is half-eagle. He is a protective deity,as could be deduced from His fierce composure, and considered the ruler of the bird kingdom.
The Garuda murti that you see on this page is made from brass. The metal is superimposed with thick layers of colour - vermillion for the complexion, shades of blue for the loincloth and the wings, crimson for the crown, and green and gold for the plinth. All deep, solid colours that bring out the resplendence of the gold adornment on His powerful form.
Note how the snakes at various junctures of the iconography are also the colour of gold. So are the dense serrations on His underwings.
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.
