Goddess Mariamman (Mari-rain, Amman-mother) is the materialization of a divine maternal affection (as Amman) and feminine fecundity (as rain) in the Southern states of India. She is worshipped variously as the incarnation of Devi Durga, Kali, and Parvati- the primary goddesses in the Hindu religion as well as Draupadi (the wife of Pandavas), Yelamma-Renuka (mother of Parashurama), Kokkalamma (goddess of cough). Embodying the nurturing and vanquishing powers of the primordial feminine energy (Prakriti), Mariamman in south Indian shrines has become the core in which all other mother-goddesses and their cults seem to fuse.

In this divinely crafted brass Mariamman statue, the goddess is enthroned on an inverted lotus platform patterned with vegetation. Devi is in the royal posture- Lalitasana with a fine sari draped around her heavenly figure and gold ornaments adorning her. An elongated Kiritamukuta crown, a fiery halo formed with brass, and a five-hooded serpent add a distinctive grandeur to this brass Mariamman murti. An imposing aureole with flames of Devi’s Teja (aura) transformed into ornate petals and Makara (mythical animal) on top, give you an icon of goddess Mariamman worthy of being welcomed in a temple. Goddess in the brass icon appears in her chaturbhuja (four-armed) form, carrying a trident, a sword, a skull cup, and a drum with a serpent wrapped around it. Mariamman fills the heart with pure devotion with wide eyes and a gleaming countenance.


The great goddess Mariamman among her devotees is simply Amman- mother, who can be approached through modest means like singing the Amman Thalaattu (Thalaattu means lullaby) with devotion or by difficult rituals like Kavadi (walking on fire). Whatever the goal, method, and time of evoking the mother are, Mariamman holds her children in her protective embrace, saving them from troubles of the human realm like fever, cough-cold, and smallpox as well as the enemies unseen.


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.

 

  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.

 

 

  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.


  • 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. 

 

Brass idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses are especially known for their intricate and detailed work of art. Nepalese sculptures are famous for small brass idols portraying Buddhist deities. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
