• 1. Lord Hanuman is believed to have invented this fret-less beautiful string instrument and played it, hence this instrument has been named after the Lord as “Hanumathvina” which is popularly known as Gotuvadyam and the same has been renamed as Chitravina.
  • 2. There are two types of music existing universally. One is that which is being rendered/played by human beings living in this material world, called as “Maanusha Ghana” and the other one is known as “Deva Ghana” being rendered/played by the celestials like Thumburu, Naradha, Nandhi and others. Here, Lord Hanuman, the Nava-vyakarana Panditha’s, playing is Devaghana. To represent this, His left side YALI is facing up-ward and listening to his divine music, which we don’t see in the instruments in this Manusha Boomi.
  • 3. In order to represent that Lord Hanuman is a devotee of the Rama Avathara (incarnation) of Vishnu, he adorns Vishnu’s CHANGU & CHAKRA on both the sides of his Hanumathvina.
  • 4. While playing the instrument Hanuman’s full concentration is only on his master Lord Sita Rama.
  • 5. Usually when one sits in Padmasana posture both feet’s toe would be facing upward. Since Hanuman’s visualizing his Master before him and playing the instrument even while sitting in Padmasana posture he is keeping both his feet’s toe facing downwards.
  • 6. Since hanuman is playing in front of his Master his Angavasthiram has been tied over his belly representing Shishya bhava.
  • 7. After receiving the Choodamani from Goddess Seetha, Hanuman never kept it down. He always wears it in his Kreetam (head), which has been represented here.
  • 8. Every Hindu deity adorns the Thiruvachchi or Prabai, which is again considered to be very a sacred ornament as per the Hindu Mythology/ Agama Sastra. Chennai Fine Arts aims to do sacred service and that represents the Prabhai for Lord Hanuman with the words ‘Isaiyum paniyum engal thavame’.
