Monkey Perched on Street Performer's Shoulder. A singer/storyteller and his costumed monkey perform tricks for tourists visiting the beach. Hanuman, a monkey god in the Hindu pantheon is the loyal friend to Lord Rama in the great Hindu epic the Ramayana. Lindsay Hebberd, 1992. Mamallapuram, India
This is an extremely expressive statue or carving of a most beloved Hindu deity. I have kept very few over the years, because I want images and statues which really speak deeply of the energy of incarnated spirit of these particular avatars. This is the most beautiful Baba Hanuman I have ever seen.
