This is a wooden standing statue of Lord Hanuman. He is one of the main characters of the epic Ramayana, who played a very crucial role in the liberation of Sita and destruction of the demon king, Ravana. He is known with various names like Pavanputra (Son of Vayu), Anjaniputra (Son of Anjani Devi), Bajarangbali (Physically and spiritually strong) and Veeranjaneya (Source of confidence).
Lord Hanuman symbolically stands for pure devotion, complete surrender and absence of ego or the lower self.
As Anjaniputra, he is the one who comes accidentally into this world, but by his efforts ascends to the greater heights of spiritual evolution. As Vayuputra, he is the breath body in us and can help the lower self that is lost to ignorance to reunite with its true companion, the inner soul. As Veeranjaneya, he is the source of courage and confidence. As Bajarangbali, he is strong in both devotion and physical strength. He is an ocean of virtues and friend of the pure hearted. He loves the ascetic qualities in man because only those who are detached and mentally free from the luxuries of life and desires of their bodies can truly concentrate on the divine and attain Him.
In this sculpture, the right hand depicts the Abhaya Mudra (fearlessness) and the left hand is holding a Gada (Hanuman Ji’s weapon). He is wearing an ankle length dhoti with a wide garland and two necklaces adorned over his upper body. A beautiful dupatta is hanging on his hands at the back, which falls down to the ground level. A Vaishnava tilak is glowing on his forehead showing that he is a devotee of Vishnu. A magnificent flower shaped Aureole stands at the back of his head enhancing his divinity. The long tail is extending upto the head and turning down to touch the shoulders. He is standing on a decorated three layered rectangular pedestal. The Gada is finely embellished with a gumbad like top.
He is truly an evolved God, born strangely as a manifestation of Lord Shiva, but became a great devotee of Shri Mahavishnu through Lord Rama.
