Garuda is an interesting deity of the Hindu pantheon. Primarily a vahana (divine mount), He is unconditionally devoted to the great Lord Vishnu. His form is a fusion of the powerful Greater adjutant stork and a man of divine strength. The Garuda murti that you see on this page captures Him in a devoted stance: He kneels down upon a single leg and folds His palms together afore His broad chest.
The muscular arms are flanked by a pair of powerful wings. They are carved in perfect symmetry with each other, that also in remarkable detail. The generously engraved face bears an expression of deep shraddha (unflinching trust) and buddhi (all-encompassing wisdom), the head thrown slightly backwards, adding drama to the overall stance.
Right on His shoulder, directly behind the tall crown on His head, is a standing Vishnu figurine. His wives, the gorgeous Bhoodevi and Sreedevi, stand on either side of their lord and master, balanced delicately on either wing of Garuda. The iconography is replete with perfect detail - attire, adornment, number of arms - despite the scale of their presence in this ensemble.
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.
