So, along with giving an exquisite look to your home, these may also help bring wealth, health, and happiness into your home and life.

Let's take a look at some of the most popular Indian statues.

The Dancing Shiva or the Nataraj

Nataraj or the cosmic dancer is the dancing form of the Hindu God, Shiva. The word means 'King of Dancers'. The Nataraj dance of Shiva depicts the cycle of creation and destruction of the universe. The dance is considered to arouse dormant energies that are the basis of creation. It also refers to the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. The four hands of the statue represent the cardinal directions. The left foot is raised and the right foot is placed on the Apasmara Purusha or the dwarf which is the demon of ignorance.

 

The Nataraj statue is a beautiful collectible item that can continue to give that Indian touch to your home decor for years to come.

Ganesh Statues

Ganesh is the son of Shiva and Parvati and is considered as the Lord of success. Ganesh, also known as Ganesha or Ganpati, is also the destroyer of evils and remover of all obstacles. Hindus also worship it as the God of wisdom, wealth, and knowledge.

 

The Ganesh has an elephantine look and is shown riding a mouse. The elephant head of the deity represents wisdom and its trunk signifies the sound of cosmic reality or the Om. The goad in his upper right hand is meant for the removal of all obstacles and noose in the left hand captures all difficulties allowing mankind to move smoothly.

 

He holds a laddoo, a ball-shaped Indian sweet, to indicate that one must work towards the pursuit of the sweetness of the soul. The rosary stands for pursuit of knowledge. He is shown as riding the mouse to indicate humbleness. The mouse is considered to be lowest of all creatures and riding it is supposed to indicate the humble nature of Ganesh, the destroyer of vanity and pride.

 

Take a look at this beautiful collectible item. It will not only add elegance to your home decor but will also act as a bringer of success in every area of your life.

The Goddess Lakshmi

Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of good fortune and prosperity. She is also the Goddess of beauty and love. Lakshmi is also believed to help us in our spiritual ascension and in revealing our true self, which is meant to clear the path for a life experience filled with happiness and joy.

 

The statue of Lakshmi is shown with four hands and she sits on a lotus with a lotus bud in her hand. The hands refer to righteousness, desires, wealth, and liberation from the cycle of birth and joy. The lotus stands for beauty, fertility and purity.
