Description In Indian mythology, Hanuman is a zoomorphic character. As the monkey child of Vayu, God of the Wind and Anjana, he is endowed with great strength and acumen. Hanuman figures in several ancient writings, where he performs heroic deeds. This statue represents Hanuman who brings offers to the God Rama, protector of the universe. The tree under which Hanuman sits, is a Parijata, a sacred Baobab tree. It grows in the outer Himalayas. It is said that Hanuman lives under its shade. The little squirrel in the tree, probably refers to a story from the Ramayana. There, one can read how a squirrel helped Lord Rama and his army of apes to build a stone bridge over the sea. He dropped tiny pebbles in the water which filled the gaps between the huge stones that the monkeys had thrown into the water. The message of this story is clear. Every service to Lord Rama - small or big- is of great importance. He will bless all those who are dedicated to him. This Hanuman shrine for family use can be disassembled and taken on a journey.
