Rare life size brass Hanuman stands a top the mountain base. With nice brown and gold color all over her body. Beautifully and elegantly seated atop the base.
During one of the intense fight of the legendary Battle of Lanka., Lakshmana, Rama’s brother, was fatally wounded; it was thought that he would die without the aid of an herb from a Himalayan mountain. Hanuman was the only one who could make the journey quickly, and so he went to the mountain as fast as he could.
Upon arriving, he discovered that there were many herbs along the mountainside, and did not want to take the wrong herb back. So instead, he grew to the size of a mountain, ripped the mountain from the Earth, and flew it back to the battle. This act is perhaps his most legendary among Hindus. A chunk of this mountain was said to be fallen down while carrying and the present day “Mount Roomassala” is believed to be the fallen piece. And this, is why we often see Hanuman carrying a mountain in his hand, or as his base among sculptures.
Hanuman is a Hindu god and a divine vanara companion of the god Rama. One of the central characters of the Hindu epic Ramayana. He is the ideal combination of “strength, heroic initiative and assertive excellence” and “loving, emotional devotion to his personal god Rama”. He symbolizes the human excellence of inner self-control, faith, and service to a cause, hidden behind the first impressions of a being who looks like a monkey.
