Super Large Panchamukha Hanuman (The Mystery of Shri Hanuman with Five Heads)
The Mystery of Shri Hanuman with Five Heads: Vaishnavas believe that the wind-god Vayu underwent three incarnations to help Lord Vishnu. As Hanuman he helped Lord Rama; as Bheema he assisted Krishna, and as Madhavacharya he founded the Vaishnava sect. It is interesting to note that in his youth Shri Madhavacharya distinguished himself in physical exercises and field games and is said to have had a wonderful physique. Truly, physical prowess is an integral aspect of the cult of Hanuman and he is the patron deity of wrestlers and body-builders. He is most popularly referred to as 'Vajra-anga-Bali,' meaning the Powerful One (bali) with a body (anga) hard as a thunderbolt (vajra).

Dakshinamurti Shiva
The Dakshinamurti roop is a lesser-known form of Shivaji. Usually portrayed as the fierce performer of parlokiya tandava, the Nataraja, or the mountain ascetic steeped in meditation or the sacred householder with His wife and sons, the Dakshinamurti roop portrays the guru in him. During His years of wandering in the bosom of the young Himalayas, Shivaji stumbled upon groups of lesser ascetics Who beseeched the divine to guide them on their chosen path. It is said that He had sat down to impart His knowledge to them facing the South. This murti depicts Him towering above the student-ascetics, dispensing pearls of wisdom.

A stylised tree throws some shade over the whole party, its silhouette sculpted with symmetry. Full-figured birds sculpted with masterful detail sit on its leaf-laden branches. Shivaji sits beneath it in lalitasana, the pose of royal ease, so-called because it is the way kings of olden days sat on their thrones. His left foot rests on the right thigh, while the right foot crushes a dwarf underneath (the dwarf is symbolic of worldly ignorance). A few necklaces grace His torso, while the arcs of the kundalas dangling from His lobes caress His collarbones. His posterior arms carry the damru and a flame, symbolic of the creation and the destruction processes respectively. In one of His anterior hands He holds the seat of knowledge, a book, and the other He raises in blessing.

Note how Dakshinamurti Shivaji is seated atop a mountain. A group of sages surrounds Him, absorbing divine wisdom from Him. Their palms are brought together in namaskaram mudra, a gesture of deep veneration. Note the temple top chignon on their heads, adding to the decidedly Indian aesthetic appeal of this resplendent sculpture.

Dakshinamurti Shiva

Dakshinamurthy is a facet of Hindu god Shiva as a supreme cosmic guru or teacher (Adi Guru) who enlightens one with all kinds of knowledge that elevates and enriches. Carved here in a stylized form and posture, Dakshinamurthy means, the one who is facing south (Dakshina) direction and sits under the auspicious Banyan tree to guide the cyclic courses of creation, preservation, amalgamation, suppression, and revealing true knowledge.

He sits in lalitasana on Mount Kailash with the right leg placed on the dwarf demon Apasmara, who stands for lack of knowledge and illumination. The expression on his face represents meditative serenity and calmness and the four rishis sitting on either side look towards him for the light of true knowledge; represented in a bright and glowy complexion, he is settled in bhava shuddha (deeply immersed in self) with a gentle smile on his divine face.

All the four hands carry his iconic implements, attired in luxurious garbs and ornamented in rich treasures, this sculpture gives us an essence of Lord Dakshinamurthy Shiva’s composed nature and motives. Zoom in to applaud the large tree sculpted distinctively as an aureole behind Shiva’s lustrous crown with the multiple leaves and branches twisting and turning, giving shelter to the expansive world of flora and fauna.

14" Superfine Statue of Pratyangira Devi | Incarnation of Goddess Chandni/Durga | Brass Statue | Made in India | Handmade

Goddess Pratyangira is a Hindu Goddess associated with Shakti and is also revered as Narasimhi (divine energy of Lord Narasimha). It is said that when Lord Narasimha (Vishnu incarnation) killed Hiranyakashipu by tearing his chest and drinking his blood, he became so bloodthirsty that even Shiva’s avatar of Sharabha (bird-animal-human hybrid) couldn’t control him.


Therefore to pacify Narasimha’s anger, Goddess Lakshmi incarnated as Goddess Pratyangira or Narasimhi to put the situation in control. Worshipping Goddess Pratyangira is an act of getting rid of black magic, evil doshas and enhance prosperity. The story behind Goddess’ unique name is that in ancient times, two rishis, Pratyangira and Angiras, while in their deep meditation discovered the Goddess through moola mantra and the Mother Goddess honored these rishis by naming herself as ‘Pratyangira’ after them.
