Today we received these photos from Bobby in Colorado. He has been the artist responsible for transforming Sculptor Holly Young's waxes, into beautiful bronze statues. This is the statue of the sipli at the forge. When completed it will join the statues of Gurudeva, Ganapati Stapati and the silpi sharpening a chisel, all of which are already at Kauai Aadheenam. The bronze is now ready to receive its patina, which will give it slight variations in colors.
Many gifts are arriving from devotees all over the world in preparation for Ardra Darshanam, including homa herbs, spices and 108 gallons of organic milk for the abishekam.
The necklace is for the crystal lingam in front of Nataraja. It was a gift from a number of Malaysian devotees who pooled their resources to replace the current silver one with a gold one.
