This cast bronze figure of the Hindu deity Hanuman is shown here in a playful mood with his tongue jutting out and about to spring in the air with his left leg raised to take a flight
Hanuman is shown here more like an anthropomorphic monkey than an obedient and loyal attendant of Rama, usually depicted seated at the latter’s feet.
