One of the most fascinating aspects of Indian culture is the presence of various gods and other symbolic figures each conveying a deep underlying meaning. This symbolism is what has been translated into beautiful idols that adorn many a house or an office. These idols are made from various metals and Brass is one of the most popular of them all.
Brass – an alloy of copper and zinc – is thought to have been used in India since 3rd century BCE and today is the largest brassware manufacturing country in the World. The natural shine and durability including resistance to corrosion makes Brass an ideal choice for making idols.
