    Description

    The brass figure of physician of the gods, Dhanvantari. He is standing and the towering figure has four hands. Dhanvantari is an avatar of Vishnu in Hinduism and he appears in the Vedas and Puranas as the physician of the gods (devas), and the god of Ayurveda. It is common practice in Hinduism for worshipers to pray to Dhanvantari seeking his blessings for sound health for themselves and/or others, especially on Dhanteras. According to religious texts, Dhanvantari emerged from the Ocean of Milk and appeared with the pot of amrita (nectar) during the story of the Samudra (or) Sagara Mathana while the ocean was being churned by the Devas and Asuras, using the Mandara Mountain and the serpent Vasuki. The pot of Amrita was snatched by the Asuras, and after this event another avatar, Mohini, appears and takes the nectar back from the Asuras. It is also believed that Dhanvantari promulgated the practice of Ayurveda. He is often depicted with four hands with one of them carrying Amrita, the Ambrosia of god. Here Dhanvantari is depicted as Vishnu with four hands, holding Shankha, Chakra, Jalauka (leech) and a pot containing rejuvenating nectar called amrita.
