Shiva's other son besides Ganesh is Kartikeya, also known as Kumara, Skanda, Subramanya, Shanmukha or Murugan (used in Tamil Nadu).  Murugan has four hands that hold a diamond shaped spear, and a double dorje with his two front hands in the abhaya mudra.  Murugan's vahana or vehicle to Murugan's right is the peacock who struts around admiring his own beauty.  Murugan keeps the peacock around to remind us not to let pride and egotism get the better of us.   Next to his right hand he holds the vel and a sharp spear.  He uses the vel to guard the spiritual progress of the world.  The vel is separate from the statue and can be removed.


I always say to our customers; The sculpture chooses you, you do not choose the sculpture.
You just know when you find the right piece to bring into your home and into your heart.
- Kyle Tortora, Founder of Lotus Sculpture
Murugan or Skanda is regarded as the supreme commander of the Gods and the destroyer of evil forces.  He is also regarded as the epitome of knowledge.  He is revered as an infant, as a child - (Balasubramanian), as a handsome and romantic prince (Valli Manavaalan - Azhagan Murugan), as an invincible warrior - ruler, and also as a mature renunciate. Murugan is also known as Kartikeya, Kumara, Skanda, Subramanya, Shanmukha or  Murugan.   As Kartikeya he is designated the deity of war, guarding right and destroying evil.  As Subramanya, he has two consorts, Valli and Devasena, who embody Jnana Shakti, the power of knowledge and Kriya Shakti, the power of action. As Shanmukha, the six-headed, he teaches that we have five senses and the mind, and only when all six are in harmony is there spiritual growth.

Murugan is regarded as the son of Shiva and Parvati and hence the brother of Ganesha.  There is a shrine to Murugan in all Saivite temples in Tamil Nadu, and likewise there are shrines to Shiva and Parvati in all temples dedicated to Skanda.

Valli, the daughter of a tribal ruler and Devani the daughter of Indra the King of Devas are the consorts of Skanda.  Murugan is also revered as the nephew of Vishnu and is referred to as Maal Marugan.

Murugan's vahana or 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 battle Murugan's weapon is a bow and arrow.  He is often shown carrying a flag and vel or spear.  The vel is a symbol of Lord Murugan.  He uses the vel to guard the spiritual progress of the world.

The Story of the Birth of the Celestial Warlord:  Parvati gave Shiva's aura to the gods.  "From this will rise the warlord you seek," said the goddess.
The gods gave Shiva's aura to Svaha, consort of Agni, the fire god.  Unable to bear the heat of the aura and the god Agni for long, Svaha gave the aura to Ganga the river goddess who cooled it in her icy waters until Shiva's aura turned into a seed.
Aranyani, the goddess of the forest, embedded the divine seed in the fertile forest floor where it was transformed into a robust child with six heads and twelve arms.
Six forest nymphs called the Krittikas found this magnificent child in a lotus.  Over come by maternal affection they began nursing him.  The six headed son of Shiva, born of many mothers, came to be known as Kartikeya.
Parvati taught Kartikeya the art of war and turned him into the celestial warlord called Skanda.
Skanda took command of the celestial armies, defeated Taraka in battle and restored the heavens to the gods.

Brass statues from India 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.

Indian 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.
