Ramayana – Panchmukhi Hanuman

This exclusively commissioned artwork for art-ma by Paolo Libralesso completes The Ramayana Collection.

The Panchmukhi Hanuman is the form of Hanuman when he assumed a five faced form in order to defeat King Ahiravana, the King of Patala Loka who had kidnapped Rama and Lakshman. King Ahiravana’s life force was enshrined in five flames pointing in different directions, the only way to defeat the king was to extinguish these flames at the same time. So Hanuman altered his form to add another five heads made  up of Lord Narasimha, Lord Garuda, Lord Varaha and Lord Hayagriva. Hanuman used all five faces to blow out the flames at the same time killing Ahiravana.
