Description
I have eight faces, four legs, and sixteen arms and trample the four Mara underfoot.  Fearful am I to fear itself, with my necklace made of a string of heads and dancing furiously on a solar disk.  Black am I and terrible with a crossed vajra on my head, my body smeared with ashes, and my mouths sending forth the sound of OM.  But my inner nature is tranquil and holding Nairatmya in loving embrace, I am possessed of tranquil bliss.  My front face is black, the one to the right is like white jasmine, the one to the left is red and fearful, and the one to the rear is distorted,  The remaining faces are like those of bees, and there are twenty-four eyes and so on.
from Enlightened Ways, The Many Streams of Buddhist Art in Thailand

Hevajra's dancing form holds 8 ghee deepams or lamps in his hands.  In order to light the lamp you will need a wick made from cotton along with oil or ghee as the fuel. 
Lamps are lit during daily puja and all Hindu festivals.  Non more so than Diwali known as the "festival of lights". 
The light from the lamp symbolizes the absence of darkness, grief and sorrows and indicates inside knowledge, awareness and enlightenment.  By lighting the deepam the grace of the godhead will spread all over the house, temple or meditation room.
Care

Brass statues from Bali, Indonesia 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.  Bali brass is meant only to be used indoors. 

"You can use a natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil  and a cotton cloth to periodically
wipe down 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.  This will not remove any of the natural patina on the statue.
