Hanuman – A happy face

Hanuman singing


Hanuman, Anjaneya… refer to Lord Rama’s ardent devotee. Here he is seen singing Bhajans, devotional songs, eulogising  Rama.Hanuman singing back

This image is only 4.2 cm in height but talks volume. Happy face and totally engrossed in what he is doing. One of my favourites.

Hanuman is often worshipped on his own. He is one of the central characters in Hindu epic Ramayana. Hanuman is part of folklore and religious practices in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Indonesia as well.

This bronze is from South India, maybe Tamil Nadu. It may date to the 18th century.
