  • In Buddhism Yab Yum depicts a male deity in union with a female deity which represents the unity of compassion, represented by the male figure, and wisdom represented by the female figure
  • This Yab Yum sculpture shows the meditating Buddha entwined with a female deity who holds a curved knife or kartri, and a skull cup that are used in tantric worship
  • In Hindu ideology the union represents the male form of Shiva as Bhairava in union with the goddess Kali
Description Buddha is locked in close embrace (yab-yum) with a female diety. The pose is also referred to as Shiva Shakti. Shakti holds a kartri (curved knife) in her right hand which symbolizes breaking with all material possessions and a kapala or skull cup in her left hand. Yab-Yum is a tantric symbol of mystic union of male and female polarities. Masculine energy is compassion, and feminine energy is wisdom. The two acting in consort is the enlightened mind.
Care

Bronze statues from China do not need much maintenance.  They are durable and strong!  Most statues have black felt on the bottom of them to protect the surface they sit on.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  These statues are mostly small and meant for indoor use.   

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

You can use 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.
