Painters delight in the juxtaposition and ambiguities of this unusual form of Shiva. Ardhanarishvara is one of the several forms of Shiva and the most interesting.

Seated on the tiger skin is the androgynous form of Shiva where his left half is female and the right half is male. The left half represents Shakti in the form of Parvati and the right half Shiva. Whereas Parvati is the cause of the arousal of Kama - the desires, Shiva is the killer of Kamadeva - the god of desires. Parvati wears a pointed crown, Shiva rests peacefully in jatamukuta; his simplicity in dress and accoutrements is in contrast to her finery. On one hand, Ardhanarishvara incorporates a synthesis of opposites and on the other, integrates the opposites to show that they complement each other.

With the intention of keeping the beauty of the image intact, the artist does not clutter the background. Flat indigo covers the upper half and the lower half has muddy brown with Nandi the bull prominently placed in the foreground.

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
