Description A very interesting sculpture of a Khmer style Lord Shiva standing with four arms.  The statue is beautiful for its simpliticity.  Shiva wears only a loin cloth and wears no jewelry or any ornamentation usually associted with any of the Hindu gods and goddesses.  His face has a slight indication of a mustache.  His hair is piled on top of his head in 4 tiers of curls.  All of his 4 arms are raised.  His figure is slight, lean and has a graceful flow.  The patina is a beautiful verde-gris antique patina which gives it the feel of a true antique statue.
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.
