Dear Sri Mani Varadarajan :

The best vigrahams are of the highest cliber are 
cast in and around KumbakONam .Sri Rengarajaan's father 
could eb of help in acquiring such a claasical type 
of Vigraham .At KumbhakONam , the vigrahams
are made by sculptors , who have their shops
in front of Sri Ramar Koil , which is a kilometer
or two from Sri AarAvamudhan Temple . 

Swamimalai is another town , where such vigrahms are made 
and that is not toofar from KumbakONam city limits .

When you have the Sri Lakshmi HayagrIva Vigraham ,
you should have PrANa prathishtai done by 
H.H. Parakala Matam yathis.

Best wishes ,
