Description 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.  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.
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
"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
White marble statues from Varanasi, India that are unpainted can be placed outdoors.  We recommend keeping our smaller red and black marble statues as well as any painted marble statues in an indoor environment.  The red and black marble statues have some delicate pieces that could chip if left outisde.  The paint from the white marble statues will not last for more than 4 years if left outside so use discretion when placing your statues outdoors.
