Dynamicism in the art of the sculptor is a highly sought-after feature. This lifelike portrayal of our beloved Ganesha is fine example of the same, with the stance of being in the middle of a divine dance routine and the finish emulating superbly the deity's glowing skin. His head is dressed in adornments that are usually put on elephants during festivals in Southern India. His thick trunk is bears a Shaivite tilak, indicating His parentage (Ganesha is the son of Shiva), and a couple of other tattoos as well as a small tinkling bell at the base. The striated end of the same curves around a pot of nectar. Note how the large mischievous eyes complement the delicate winnow shape of His ears. While a snake holds His pot belly together - it would otherwise burst from all the gorging He is famous for - the ample pleats of His richly embellished dhoti gather beneath the same. His shringar befits that of the heavenly beings.

In the posterior hands He holds a goad and a noose with which to trap the adharmee and restrain them back to the path of dharma. In one of His anterior hands He holds a piece of His broken tusk, while in the other is a large modak laddoo. This sweetmeat is His absolute favourite, numerous more of which could be found overflowing from a pot placed at the pedestal. What sets this murti apart from your run-of-the-mill Ganesha murtis is the superbly detailed pedestal. It is multi-layered. The lotus-engraved steps lead up the first layer that houses five miniature Ganeshas, each playing on a different musical instrument. Atop them sits Nandi at the foot of the inverted lotus, beating the dhol on His own miniature pedestal. On the same level is Ganesha's vahan, the rat, holding up to His lord and master a modak laddoo. Flanked by two dasas, one bearing a pineapple and the other a comb of bananas on the head, this dancing Ganesha is a chala (Sanskrit for mobile) murti - note the decorative loops on either side of His waist, which have been designed for the deity to be held in place in a motioning chariot.

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.


  • Another way is to cleanse the statue with mild soap, warm water, and a cotton cloth. You must go to every inch of the statue and even to the crevices and cracks. After this, clean the article with a dry towel to wipe off pools of water left on the surface.


  • 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.
