Description Shiva and Parvati's other son besides Ganesh is Kartikeya, also known as Kumara, Skanda, Subramanya, Shanmukha or Murugan (used in Tamil Nadu).  He is the Hindu god of war.  His vehicle is the peacock who struts around admiring his own beauty.  Murugan places himself on top of the peacock suppressing it, reminding us not to let pride and egotism get the better of us.   In his hand he holds the a small vel or sharp spear.  He uses the vel to guard the spiritual progress of the world. 
Care

Brass statues from Cambodia 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.  As they are brass, they can be used both indoors and outdoors.    Although if the statue has a black wooden base it is not recommended for the outdoors as the base will show signs of wear over time outside.

"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.
