This beautifully carved statue of Varaha is handcrafted in Tamil Nadu.Varaha is the third avatara of the Hindu God Vishnu, in the form of a boar.Varaha is most commonly associated with the legend of lifting the Earth (personified as the goddess Bhudevi) out of the cosmic ocean. When the demon Hiranyaksha stole the earth and hid her in the primordial waters, Vishnu appeared as Varaha to rescue her. Varaha slew the demon and retrieved the Earth from the ocean, lifting it on his tusks, and restored Bhudevi to her place in the universe.
Amazingly, just as the art of
bronze has persevered through the ages so is the lost wax casting
technique. The process of making these artifacts is an elaborate process
where different alloys are mixed in the right preparation followed by heating,
waxing, and molding. Bronze work is one of the most difficult forms of art
to master and the process itself involves hours of labor along with precision.
These crafts are ideally suited as decorative as outdoors and indoors.
This product is suitable for gifting purpose and can be used for illuminating
the corners of your house with goodness and positivity.
