The beauty and elegance of Shiva's presence are incredibly encapsulated in this fine sculpture of white marble as it carves itself to display his magnificent four arms curved with great expertise as he holds an artistic drum that represents the universe and its constant workings. A fierce-looking tiger also seats himself under him as a ravishing, black-spotted, grey snake twists around his neck. A cute goat as white as snow also peaceful sits near him, elated by Lord Shiva's presence. Finally, the golden-colored sharp trident, that he firmly grips in his hand, emphasizes his ultimate power.
Moreover, he was also the greatest abstinent, who remained away from indulging in pleasure yet focused on peaceful meditation as a key to the perfect happiness. His existence represents infinity itself as he is the Lord of the three worlds-Vishwanath and is second to none in wrath and power and is regarded as the transformer of the Vishwanath.
How to clean and maintain marble statues?
Marble has been a preferred material for sculptors and artists for more than a thousand years. It is a rock that undergoes metamorphism which causes recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains. Marble comes in various colors, designs, and dimensions. Pure white marble is the most preferred type of marble for making sculptures and statues since time immemorial. White marble is especially used for sculpting stone monumental sculptures since ancient times. The natural shine and luster of the carbonate crystals of white marble give a lavish and beautiful appearance to the statue.
Marble stone statues are highly durable and can even withstand harsh weather conditions without getting corroded, therefore, they can be kept indoors or outdoors without getting damaged or weathered. Although these statues can last for many decades, their regular care and cleaning are essential to increase their longevity and beautiful appearance.
Marble statues need periodical cleaning to maintain their flawless look. However, harsh and deep cleaning can result in making the statue look dull. If your marble statue is withering away, it is recommended to take the help of a professional cleaner. Marble is a delicate material and therefore needs proper care.
