Sudarshana is the name given to the chakra or discus of Lord Vishnu. It is symbolic of time and the havoc it wreaks upon existence as we know it. As such, the Sudarshana roopa (form) of the Lord is His all-annihilating aspect. The murti that you see on this page portrays Sudarshana Vishnu within a perfectly circular aureole from which emerge discrete quanta of flames (prabhavali).
Sudarshana Vishnu bears the implements of all three of the Brahma-Vishnu-Mahesha trinity. HIs multiple limbs bear a variety of weapons, while His two feet are balanced upon each half of the damroo of Shiva. A six-pointed yantra is right behind the wrathful figure. Interestingly, the reverse of this murti features the seated figure of Lord Narasimha, a particularly ferocious Vishnu-avatara.
The legs of Narasimha are in sukhasana and He is possessed of four arms (chaturbhujadhari). A five-hooded snake that bares its fangs upon the onlooker balances Him on its heads. A high plinth supports the ensemble described heretofore. In fact, the style in which it is made and the engravings on its body are the hallmarks of South Indian workmanship.
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.
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.
