‘Namaste’ simply means, I bow to the divine contained within you. By joining the palms afore the anahata nerve plexus (chakra), the fingers together but not interlocked, and simply uttering the word, one confers divinity upon the other. It is no wonder that this traditional Indian greeting is extended to deities as well as other people.
The murtis that you see on this page are a pair of young ladies standing on upturned lotus plinths. Their hands are in the anjali mudra, the stance of the hands described heretofore. It is like they are perennially in a state of greeting, which makes them ideal pieces of decor for your home or office entrance.
The traditional attire and adornments of the ladies add to the welcoming quality of the composition. Their faces are identical: sharp, perfectly symmetrical features, framed by a tall, tapering crown and karnakundalas and a parrot sitting on each shoulder. The stance of one of them may be slightly more on the tribhanga side than the other’s.

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.
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.
