brass sculpture of Hanuman is a spectacular example of great artistry. The
brass is of very rich quality and even much exceptional is the appreciable
skill of the artist who succeeded in defining Hanuman with so much perfection;
fixate your eyes anywhere on the statue and you will be in eternal delight.
Bajrangbali stands here in Abhaya mudra and is blessing strength and
fearlessness to everyone.
The crown of Hanuman is very densely designed and the leaf in the centre with clear
striations is a gem to it. Mace (Gada), the weapon of Hanuman, is made more
attractive as it’s chipped with the small tridents and flowers on alternate
stripes. The broad chest and the fine shape of the torso amplify the beauty of this
idol. The heavy embroidery on dhoti is so unique that it complements the
design of the necklace and the sacred thread (Janeoo).
things to be noticed are, how balanced the carving of the legs is, and the tail
that goes all the way flowing around the aureole is very well spaced with
attractive designs. This is a focal point in the sculpture. The final touch is
given by adding a high pedestal on which the deity stands and note how pointy
the edges are of the sculpture and the chiseled lotus flower on different
levels of the plinth.
