It is a well known fact that Hanuman was born of divine parents. His father was Vayu, the wind god and his mother was Anjani who had been transformed into a monkey under the spell of a curse. Working in brass the sculptor has magnificently carved out this sculpture aptly depicting the innate cosmic strength of Lord Hanuman in unique five tones of blended green and gold, amazing chola giving it an ancient touch, bright combination of copper, silver and gold, lustrous yellow-gold and distinct silver. The facial expressions and structure of his body are etched in superfine way justifying his brawny appearance and nature.
He stands here on a finely carved pedestal in lotus petals with his legs widened and folded knees depicting his vigorous built. Lord is adorned in an extensively carved short dhoti and a traditionally designed kamarband that has its long ends that fall gracefully in the centre; the long heavy stole hung across his shoulders touches the pedestal and embraces his royalty. The two hands are postured in their symbolic gestures of granting a boon of fearlessness and the other holding his luxuriously carved mace (gada). The lavish jewels embellished on his body complement with the sun haloed crown crafted in a conventionalized pattern of a pointed top. His long tail that is carved forming an aureole to his divine head is a representation of his strong will.
