Hanuman statue, 7.5”T x 4.5”W. Cold casted brass and stone resin, finely carved and beautifully hand painted with exquisite detail! is the Hindu monkey god and commander of a monkey army. He is known for his power, courage and selfless service. Also called Bajrangbali or Mahavira, this deity is a deeply devoted follower of Rama, an avatar of Vishnu.
Hanuman's name originates from the Sanskrit hanu, meaning “jaw,” and man, meaning “prominent” or “disfigured.” Legend claims he received his name in childhood when Indra, the king of the gods, struck him in the jaw for attempting to leap up and grab the sun.
Hanuman also lends his name to an advanced seated yoga asana called hanumanasana.
