Here we have a
handcrafted statue in brass, representing Nataraja-
the king of dancers, a renowned epithet of Lord Shiva, who appears in Chola
Shiva icons in this vigorous and divine manifestation. Delicately carved and
endowed with all the classical features of Tamil iconographical tradition, this
compact brass Nataraja statue is the perfect arrival of Shiva’s
magnificence into your space.
Based on a
two-tiered lower platform supporting a reverse lotus pedestal, this brass
Nataraja murti is incredibly intricate, with the maker's maximum use of available space. The multiple circles of the fiery aureole that encircle the lord
of dance are aesthetically appealing due to the symmetry in their carving. A
five-hooded serpent, the Hindu symbol of “Ananta”, the infiniteness of time
acts as the canopy of the dancing Shiva whose hair strands, five on each side,
sway, similar to the snakes moving ecstatically.
Nataraja in this brass statue holds a drum, a bowl containing Agni (the symbol
of pure consciousness), and a snake whose animation complements Shiva's flowing uttariya (scarf). On the tiny figure of “Apasmara”, the demon of
ignorance, his leg raised in a vigorous posture, his visage glowing with the
fire of supreme consciousness, Shiva dances bliss.
eight pristine varieties, this brass Nataraja statue is your chance to welcome
the powers of the dancing Shiva to enrich your life.
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.
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.
