This brass statue of a Nagkanya is meant for performing puja at your home mandir temple or for decorating your home in Hindu way. Artisans of Muradabad in north India have crafted this statue using age-old sand casting technique. Nag Kanyas are considered to be the most common friend and companion of the great god Vishnu. Nagas are serpents believed to reside in the underworld and who exert spiritual influence via concealed teachings. Nagas traditionally today are believed to be snake or serpent guardians of the Mother and protectors of any who desire their support. Many nagas are seen in Indian and Buddhist temples as necessary companions to the various deities. Nagas can also be seen with nine serpent heads with expanded hoods guarding Vishnu’s head and shoulders. Nag Kanyas are symbols of purification and can be invoked when one wishes to be free of any imbalance or impurity within one’s self.
