Description This masterpiece bronze statue showcase a tirthankara meditating surrounded by an amazing arch full of other tirthankaras along with attendants, lions, yalis and an owl.  A tirthankara is someone who helps people on the path to enlightenment as an arihant or Jain holy figure. In this sculpture the main tirthankara figure, probably Mahavira, is captured with his hands clasp together in an attitude of meditation.  He is naked with his chest inflated with the breath of meditation.  Above him is a palanquin with one attendant seated on the umbrella.  to his left and right are two attendants standing on the heads of a mythical beast called a yali.  Beneath the yalis are two seated lions.  Surrounding the main figure are the full 24 tirthankaras all in a position of meditation.  On the base are two more devotees seated with their right hand raised in the abhaya mudra.  Above them are two lions.  In the front of the base are two lounging lions as well as an owl.  A masterpiece Jain statue!

Care

Bangladeshi Bronze is an extremely durable metal made from a combination of 5 metals; copper, iron, tin, with minute additions of silver and gold.  This combination is called Panchaloha bronze and is the basis for making the sacred Hindu temple statues around the world.  Copper is the most prevalent metal in the alloy.  Copper also gives the metal a softer composition that allows the bronze artisans to carve the details that are prevalent in each piece.    All the Bangleshi bronze sculpture Lotus Sculpture carries are Panchaloham and thus suited for any home altar or community temple. 

"If you would like the piece to shine use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the bronze statue."

Because of the durability of the metal not much is needed to maintain a bronze sculpture.  Many of our customers purchase a bronze statue and perform daily puja and abhisheka consisting of bathing the Hindu deity in ghee, milk, coconut milk or other liquids.  In this case nothing is needed to keep the statue clean as it will be bathed daily.  If the sculpture is used for "darshan" or simply viewing the sculpture it is best to dust the statue as needed so no dirt collects in the details of the sculpture. For Bangladeshi bronze statues if you would like the sculpture to shine, use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the piece as needed.
