Description
"The Gayatri is Brahma, Gayatri is Vishnu, Gayatri is Shiva, Gayatri is the Vedas"

About Gayatri:  Gayatri has five heads and is often seated on a lotus flower.  Four of the five heads of Gayatri represent the four Vedas and the fifth one represents almighty God, Brahman.  In her ten hands, she holds all the weapons and symbols of Lord Vishnu.  Gayatri is another consort of Lord Brahma.

Gayatri was originally a 24 syllable part of the Vedic hymns.  "We meditate on that glorious light of the divine Surya, may he, the lord of light illuminate our minds".   Gayatri was the "glorious light" in the hymn.    She was characterized by fire, shakti, and later transformed from a part in the Vedic hymns to the Hindu goddess Gayatri.

Care
"Use a cotton cloth and gently buff the surface of the statue to bring out the natural polish of the stone."

White, red and black marble statues are easy to take care of as they just need some annual upkeep to keep them looking as they did when they were first carved.  Here are some easy tips to keep your White, red and black marble statues from Lotus Sculpture looking like the gods they are:
  • Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
  • To make the statue shine use a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture
  • You can use a small amount of natural oil such as coconut oil or olive oil to further polish the sculpture
  • Use a tooth brush to get into the hard to reach spaces of the sculpture
  • DO NOT TOUCH the painted surfaces of any of the white marble statues.  This will damage the painting if done often
White marble statues from Varanasi, India that are unpainted can be placed outdoors.  We recommend keeping our smaller red and black marble statues as well as any painted marble statues in an indoor environment.  The red and black marble statues have some delicate pieces that could chip if left outisde.  The paint from the white marble statues will not last for more than 4 years if left outside so use discretion when placing your statues outdoors.
