MURTIS - STATUES


A Murti is a humanized image or statue of a Hindu deity. The images or sculptures may be present inside or outside a home or temple, as part of processional festivities, or as a cultural landmark.

The Sanskrit translation of Murti is “Embodiment” and study of a Murti is meant to inspire those that look upon its likeness. They are constructed with careful symbolism relating to the deity that they embody.
