Description

When posed in this powerful and exuberant manner, the image of Hanuman stood at the top of a standard. As the son of the wind god and the most powerful of the primeval forest-dwellers, who are depicted with the head and tail of a monkey and the body of a man, Hanuman as an emblem spelled success in battle.
