Description

 

 Lord Rama is a representation of an ideal man. In more or less every picture of Ram, you will see him with a bow over his strong shoulder (Ajanu Baha), a quiver on his back, an arrow or a blessing gesture in his right hand and often with companions Sita (his wife), Lakshmana (his brother) and Hanuman (loyal monkey attendant). Ram's skin is bluish because it shows his relationship with Vishnu and Krishna also, Ram has a 'tilak' on his forehead which is a decorative and identifying mark commonly worn by priest, ascetic or a worshiper showing which Hindu tradition is followed.
