About Craft- The Swamimalai bronze icons are made by the artists known as the ‘Sthapathis' of a small village on the banks of River Cauvery - SWAMIMALAI - located seven kms from the Temple Town of Kumbakonam. Swamimalai is famous for South Indian Bronze moorthy making, and the artisans here have been following a tradition that is several centuries old. The Highlight of the moorthy manufacture in Swamimalai is the usage of the ancient method called the Madhuchishtavidhana or lost-wax method (cire perdue) a skill passed on for generations since the Chola period. A science that finds reference in the Rig Veda & Silpa Sasthira, this age-old method spells precision, technique and aesthetics while adhering to the firmly laid down standards and principles.
