This brass image of Ganapati, small in size but immeasurable in its magnificence and grandeur, defines his Vira Ganapati – the ‘valiant warrior’ form, one of his initial thirty-four classical forms which early texts, the eighth century Maudgalya Purana in special, have identified or conceived. Though exceptionally beautiful and endowed with divine aura, Vira Ganapati, primarily a votive form conceived as standing and in readiness to proceed to a target, is broadly a fierce form having a commanding posture. In plasticity, precision, minuteness of details, especially in designing his ‘antariya’ – the lower wear, and ornaments and crown, and in creating desired effect, especially the majestic bearing, the artefact is simply unparalleled. With sixteen arms stretched on both sides the image acquires circular form and is thus suggestive of cosmic dimensions which Lord Ganesha pervades.


The initial thirty-four forms of Lord Ganesha that early texts discovered personify thirty-four concerns that Lord Ganesha is believed to have for created beings. Some texts contend that his thirty-four forms correspond to thirty-four aspects of human mind which Lord Ganesha influences. Basically the remover of obstacles and harbinger of good and auspices, each of these forms of Ganesha falls under one of these two classes. Vira Ganapati is, however, a form which is both, the remover of obstacles and the harbinger of good for the blissful Lord, the valiant warrior Ganesha, fights out obstacles and effects good, prosperity and success. In his form as Vira Ganapati Lord Ganesha is both, the protector and the promoter of his devotees and all.


The iconographic form of Vira Ganapati is relatively simple and straight not inclined to have rhythmic curves of dance, the usual mode of his anatomy, or any kind dramatization of form. In his Vira Ganapati form Lord Ganesha is conceived as standing in straight posture with an awe-striking disposition and demeanour of his face. Even his trunk is relatively straight curving only around its lower end. His images as Vira Ganapati are endowed with sixteen arms carrying in them a goad, disc, bow, arrow, sword, shield, spear, mace, battle-axe, trident, noose, flag, parrot, hammer, dagger and stick, besides the ‘poorna-ghata’ – fully accomplished ritual pot, which he carries in his trunk. He has one of his tusks broken and has a pot-belly of larger size such as he has in his Lambodara form. This image of the great Lord has been rendered in exact adherence to the classical norms defining the form of Vira Ganapati. The essential attributes of Vira Ganapati, his single tusk stands for his single-mindedness and his capacity to make any sacrifice, and his large pot belly, for the oceanic knowledge that he contains.

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.

 

  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.

 

 

  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.


  • 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. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
