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
Care

Brass statues from Thailand 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. 

Thai 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.
