Old Hanuman Holding Mountain



Old cast brass piece from India. This piece depicts Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god who is the symbol of devotion and loyalty, holding an entire mountain in his hand. As the story goes, Hanuman was sent to this mountain to collect special healing herbs to heal Lakshman, who was wounded in battle against the evil Rawana. Upon finding the mountain, Hanuman found that he did not know what the magic healing herb looked like, so he wrapped his arms around the whole mountain, lifted it up and took the mountain back to where Lakshman was waiting for him.
