Shiva is thunderously dancing on Apasmara the dwarf who represents ignorance in the world. He has 8 arms that hold a bell, cobra, dhamru or drum, agni or fire, trident and a small skull cup. His front two hands are held up in the typical fashion of his arms as Nataraja with one in the Abhaya mudra and the other stretched across his chest. His left leg is held aloft with his right firmly planted on Apasmara. The dwarf is holding a cobra and has two horns as well as sharp teeth jutting out from his mouth. Shiva has a large conical headress on and a benign smile adorning his lips. The Shiva is hand carved and completely one of a kind. When you order this Shiva you will receive this exact sculpture pictured above.
About Gorora Stone: Gorora stone or Red marble is a wonderful stone for sculpture because of its wide color range. It is rarer than most soft stones and must be shipped into Tamil Nadu from Uttar Pradesh in the north. The stone has wonderful cream/yellow/green veins in it contrasting to the beautiful deep red to sometimes pink natural coloration of the stone. The stone is extremely glossy. When a red marble statue is polished it has a disarming shimmer.
About the Artist
Balan Arimuvani is the artist behind all our colored marble statues. He has worked with Lotus Sculpture since we started in 2002. His small marble workshop began with only him and 2 other workers. His business has grown to 8 marble artists and now he has a granite workshop employing 30 workers for large granite statues. He continually credits Lotus Sculpture with his success saying it would not have been possible with out the continuing commissions from Lotus Sculpture. Balan is a good friend of Kyle Tortora, the owner of Lotus Sculpture. He has a wife and two beautiful girls.
View the video below to meet Balan and see his marble workshop and see a little how the statues are carved:
"Use a cotton cloth and gently buff the surface of the statue to bring out the natural polish of the stone."
White, red and black marble statues are easy to take care of as they just need some annual upkeep to keep them looking as they did when they were first carved. Here are some easy tips to keep your White, red and black marble statues from Lotus Sculpture looking like the gods they are:
Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
To make the statue shine use a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture
You can use a small amount of natural oil such as coconut oil or olive oil to further polish the sculpture
Use a tooth brush to get into the hard to reach spaces of the sculpture
DO NOT TOUCH the painted surfaces of any of the white marble statues. This will damage the painting if done often
