Description

4 inches. Hand painted Ganges clay.

Like Krishna, Rama is an incarnation of Vishnu, whose elevated character and righteous actions are designed to inspire men to divine consciousness. In liberating his consort Sita from the demon Ravana (symbol of material illusion), Rama is greatly aided by the brave monkey general Hanuman. Recognizing Godhead beneath the human disguise, Hanuman consecrates himself wholly to service of Rama. Depicted in a kneeling pose of utter devotion, with soldier’s mace and helmet, he symbolizes the strength and purity of the Perfect Servant.
