In a brilliantly moving posture, “Ardhanarishwara” (“Ardha” meaning half, “Nari”- woman, and “Ishwara”- god) is placed on a neat upturned lotus pedestal- lotus, a symbol of origin. The murti presents Ardhanarishwara with a long “Jatamukut” or crown of matted hair, adorned with a crescent moon. Shiva in the right half of the brass Ardhanarishwara statue has two arms, in one of which he carries a goad, a weapon that signifies his role as Pashupati- the controller of the soul which is compared to an animal or Pashu. Goddess Parvati on the left has her leg raised in the air, while Shiva with his foot firmly grounded highlights his stability which is combined with the vigorous female potency or Shakti to bring a serene balance to the world.

The primary hands of Shiva-Shakti in this brass Ardhanarishwara statue are positioned in the gesture of playing a musical instrument. Merging the powerful visual narration of the act of dancing and the coming together of Shiva-Shakti, this brass Ardhanarishwara statue will assuredly fill its surroundings with life-affirming energies that emanate from this divine union. 

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.



  • 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. 


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. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
