  • Adorable statue of Ganapathi! perfect for a small altar to Lord Ganesha, the remover of obstacles!
  • He holds two pasams or nooses in his upper hands with his right hand is rasied in the abhaya mudra and his left hand holding his favorite sweet, laddus, that his trunk is playfully trying to eat
Description This adorable Ganesh has a style all his own!  Ganesha's face has a different style than what is typical of brass Ganesh statues.  He is seated holding an ax, noose, and a laddu with his final hand held up in the abhaya mudra or "fear not" hand position.  He wears simple pants with nothing on his upper half besides some necklaces.  He is seated in a very relaxed position completely at ease with himself and his surroundings.  There is no base to this sculpture so the full height of the statue is only Ganesh.  There is an OM sign a trident and many swirling designs on the base of his trunk.  His vehicle, a rat, is crawling up his pants.  This is a very unique spot for the rat to be in a Ganesha sculpture!  Because rats are capable of gnawing through anything they are a great companion for the remover of obstacles! Ganesh has a deep metal color with some hints of copper coming through around his ears.  An adorable statue of Lord Ganesh!
About Krishna

One of the most widely revered and most popular of all Indian divinities, is Krishna worshipped as the eighth incarnation (avatar) of Vishnu. Krishna became the focus of a large number of devotional cults, which over the centuries have produced a wealth of religious poetry, music, painting and sculpture.

The child Krishna was adored for his mischievous pranks; he also performed many miracles and slew demons. As a youth, the cowherd Krishna became renown as a lover, the sound of his flute prompting gopis (wives and daughters of the cowherds) to leave their homes to dance ecstatically with him in the forests. His favorite among them was the beautiful Radha. Krishna's youthful dalliances with the gopis are interpreted as symbolic of the loving interplay between God and the human soul. Krishna affirms life in his pranks, music and lovemaking.

The rich variety of legends associated with Krishna's life led to an abundance of representation in painting and sculpture. The most reknown story surrounding Krishna is the Bahgavad Gita or Gita which is considered one of the most importatnt Hindu texts. The Gita is the conversation between Krishna and Arjuna. Krishna is explaining to Arjuna that it is Arjuna's moral obligation to fight in a war that will put him against some members of his family. Krishna like Vishnu is an upholder of the moral order of the universe.

Care

Brass statues from India 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.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

"You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup."

You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over 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. 

Indian brass's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The metal can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine.
