Masa Rasa presents bronze sculptural work of Great Beings who embody the eternal subject - the Universal Self. These works are representations of renowned spiritual teachers - Gurus, Sages, and Yogis - from the mystical landscape that is India. Their message is unanimous and unwavering . . .
"You are what you seek, you are the Divine Self. God lives within you, as you.”
In the tradition of the sacred sculpture of India, such a work of art representative of a Divine Being is known as a murti - a likeness infused with the power of Consciousness. These are murtis of Great Beings who teach the highest truth, inviting us on the inward journey while remembering our own divinity.
Masa Rasa bronze sculptures are created one at a time and from the purest bronze available. Panchaloha is also available upon request, an ancient method of casting set forth in the Indian scriptures. Panchaloha means the 'Five Metals' process, in which gold and silver are added to the bronze mix to enable the innate qualities of the bronze to shine through even more. Many of these statues are available in several sizes. Gold plating is also optional.
All Masa Rasa bronze sculptures are castings of original art created by artist James Nichols . . . . . . many of them commissioned, financed, and produced by entrepreneur Ganapati Levine.
