Hanuman, the monkey god, is the embodiment of bhakti, devotion, and true selfless love and service to Lord Rama. The son of the Wind, He personifies the perfect yogi
and exhibits complete mastery over all of the senses and ego. Hanuman is a mighty and fierce warrior who carries a golden mace and leads the charge against the deamons of ignorance and delusion.
Rama and Sita entrusted him with the secrets of the universe, and through worship of Hanuman, one draws closer to divinity and unlocks the hidden treasure within. According to a story in the Ramayana, Ram’s brother Lakshman was mortally wounded in battle and it was only 3 magic herbs found on mount Dronagiri that could save him. Hanuman flew to the Himalayas to find the herbs but couldn’t find them, so he picked up the entire mountain and flew to Lakshman’s rescue.
This wall hanging sculpture was made from cutting and welding sheet metal steel that was treated with a patina, creating the brown rust coloring and green on his sash and the mountain he is carrying. The gold mace was colored with gold solvent dye and the entire piece was sprayed with a protective lacquer. Hanuman measures 4 ft 10 inches tall by 4 ft wide by 9 inches deep.
