About the Pose of the Sculpture: In the Ramayana saga Lakshmana the brother of Rama was shot by a poison tipped arrow. The only cure for the poison was an herb found in the mountains of Gandhamadana in the north called Sanjivani. The Hindu god Hanuman flew to the North of India. When he arrived in the mountains of Gandhamadana he did not know the herb by sight. Hanuman used his incredible strength to lift the entire mountain above his head and carry the mountain back to Lanka in time to save his friend Lakshmana. In legend Hanuman again and again shows his courage, loyalty and strength by numerous honorable acts.
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.
