Bulging eyes, sharp fangs, and a striking ferocity in the demeanor, the brass Kirtimukha motif is an ancient Hindu element visible in the grand temple complexes, gracing the entrance of the Garbhagriha or sanctum sanctorum. Narrated in the Shiva Maha Purana, the story of the origin of Kirtimukha is as astounding as the artistic rendition of the lion-faced demon.

Jalandhara, the menacing demon king after conquering the human and divine world, was struck by a vicious desire of winning goddess Parvati, the great mother and the most beautiful female in the three worlds, as his queen. Overjoyed by the thought, Jalandhara chose the demon Rahu as his messenger, who reached Kailasha and expressed the feelings of his king in front of Lord Shiva. Hearing the message, Shiva released his powerful rage which took the form of a ferocious demon, ready to devour the messenger of Jalandhara. Rahu however was a cunning one who knew that the Mahadeva would forgive anyone who asked for his benevolence. With folded hands, Rahu prayed to Shiva to spare him, and the Bhole Nath Shiva immediately stopped his demon from attacking Rahu.


Rahu was saved from the rage of Shiva but the powerful demon who was born moments ago was suffering from a seething hunger. The demon approached his creator Shiva and prayed to him to provide him with satiating nourishment. Shiva, the Adi Deva whose divine plays (Lila) is incomprehensible for even the most learned ones ordered the demon to devour himself.  Thus began a bizarre spectacle, of the demon slowly eating his limbs as per the wish of his maker, until the only part left of his humongous body was his face. Lord Shiva, moved by the self-sacrifice of his creation praised him and gave him the boon that he will always reside at the entrance of holy shrines as the guardian of the divine sphere, and anyone who fails to appreciate and pay respect to him, will not be able to gain the blessings of Shiva. In remembrance of the lion-faced demon’s glorious act, Shiva named him Kirtimukha (Kirti- glory, Mukha- face).

Exotic India Art with this brass Kirtimukha wall hanging brings to you the protective powers of Shiva’s boons and the potencies of Vaastu prescribed Kirtimukha that wards off all evil and ensures the presence of only positive, spiritual vibrations in your space.

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.
