Lord Pashupatinath Shiva sits right next to Devi Parvati, His ardhangini (other half). The stance of their long, lithe forms is identical - lalitasana, wherein a single leg is folded and raised to the throne upon which one sits, while the other remains pendant. In fact, the thrones beneath them are also the same: gigantic lotus blooms turned upside down, such that the deities are seated right on the pistils.
Shiva: 9 INCH HEIGHT X 6 INCH WIDTH X 6.9 INCH DEPTH, 3.360 KG.
Parvati: 7.9 INCH HEIGHT X 4.9 INCH WIDTH X 5.8 INCH DEPTH, 1.695 KG.
Shiva is possessed of (‘dhari’) four (‘chatur’) arms (‘bhuja’), which makes the chaturbhujadhari. In the posterior left hand is the figure of a leaping quadruped, an integral element of His Pashupatinath (‘pashu’ is Sanskrt for fauna; ‘pati’ and ‘nath’ for lord and master) iconography. The Devi, on the other hand, is dvibhujadharini (‘dvi’ is Sanskrt for two), which is the norm for the omnipotent Hindu devis whenever they are portrayed next to their husbands.
Both Pashupatinath and Parvati have a hand raised in blessing. Their is compassion and generosity in their gaze, seemingly directed towards ihaloka (mortal realm of existence). From the tall, engraved crowns on their heads to the style of the deities’ attire and adornments, there is a harmony and a likeness in every aspect of the twin figurines.
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.
