    Description

    Hanuman is shown kneeling with five separate heads and 10 different arms holding weapons.  In this form Hanuman is refered to as Panchamukhi Hanuman or five faced Hanuman.  The five heads are Hanuman in the center facing forward.  To the right of Hanuman is Narasimha the 4th Avatar of Vishnu.   To the left of Hanuman is Varaha the Boar the 3rd Avatar of Vishnu.  On the back side of the statue opposite Hanuman in the vehicle of Vishnu, Garuda the Eagle King.  In top of the 4 heads is horse headed, Hayagriva also a lesser known avatar of Lord Vishnu.  Hanuman's right hand is in the abhaya mudra while his left hand is holding a curved knife.  Hanuman has a golden, brass color.

    The Legend:  Lord Hanuman is said to have appeared before Raghavendra swamy in a unique way amalgamating within him the avatars of "Varaha, Garuda, Hanuman, Narasimha and Hayagreeva", thus five-headed. Panchamukhi, located on the south bank of river Tungabhadra near Manchala now known as Mantralayam is where Raghavendraswamy performed penance for 12 long years in a cave. In appreciation of his Yoga, Lord Panchamukhi Pranadevaru, Kollahpura Mahalakshmi, Lord Venkateshwara of Tirupati and Kurmavathara gave darshan to him. Then he left for Mantralaya where he entered into Samadhi. A temple has been constructed at the spot where he performed penance known as the Panchamukhi Anjaneyaswamy temple.

    The details of Panchamuka are:
    1. East facing Hanuman to grant humanity isthta siddhi.
    2. South facing Narasimha to grant humanity abhista siddhi.
    3. West facing Garuda to grant humanity sakalla sowbhagya.
    4. North facing Varaha to grant humanity dhana prapthi.
    5. Hayagriva on top to grant humanity sarva vidya jaya prapthi.

    The interpretations:  1. There are five ways of  prayer to the Lord. They are Naman, Smaran, Keerthanam, Yachanam and Arpanam. The five faces depict these five forms. Lord Hanuman always used to Naman, Smaran and Keerthanam of Lord Sri Rama. He totally surrendered (Arpanam) to his Master Sri Ram. He also begged (yachanam) Sri Rama to bless him the undivided love.

    Brass statues are made near Delhi India.  There are multiple copies of each statue made which differ from lost wax method, bronze statues in which only one statue is made.  This makes brass statues less expensive than bronze as bronze statues take much longer to make and are of higher quality. 

    About Hanuman

    Hanuman is one of the most important personalities in the epic, the Ramayana. He is a vanara who aided Lord Rama, an avatar of Vishnu, in rescuing His Consort, Sita, from the Demon king, Ravana. Vanaras are ape-like humanoids, who were created by Brahma and other gods to help Rama in battle against Ravana.

    Hanuman is the son of Vayu, the Hindu God of Wind, and is looked upon by Hindus as the ultimate hero and great devotee of Lord Rama of the Ramayana. He represents the figure of the ideal being, as he is humble yet brave. His physical prowess, mental discipline and spiritual purity have made him extremely popular all over India.
     
    He is a provider of courage, hope, knowledge, intellect and devotion. He is pictured as a robust monkey holding a mace or gada, which is a sign of bravery, and having a picture of Lord Rama tattooed on his chest, which is a sign of his devotion to Lord Rama.
     
    He is also called Mahaveera (the great hero) or Pavan-suta (son of air) or Bajarangbali.  In Tamil Nadu he is known as Anjaneya.

    Care

    Brass statues from India do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

    "You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup."

    You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.  If you are really interested in making the statue shine you can use some natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, and a cotton rag to wipe down the metal portions of the piece.  You can use a toothbrush as well to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

    Indian brass's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The metal can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine.
