This contemporary painting – oil on canvas, represents the semi-abstract forms of Shiva and Parvati and Vishnu in his symbolic form as conch. The entire anatomy and even the dimensions of the Shiva’s face have been abstracted. Whatever is visible is merely his form as Rudra – a column of fire which seems to burst from his deep fiery red lips and channelling through his nose and across the eye-junction explodes, first as fire taking his forehead’s form and then into infinite expanse of impenetrable smoke surging into endless innumerable waves – his hair, which nothing but questions send back. In this diffusion of forms, colours and every distinction it is only the determination to destroy, a few ‘whys’ as also some vague assurance that surface as the gesture of some hands into which the abyssal darkness seems to sometimes shape.

Now the ‘tripunda’ mark is more meaningful. The third eye emerged on the forehead has swung it into the space where a wheel of fire with no length or breadth but only the motion, rotating to measure out everything, over-rides all three cosmic zones that the ‘tripunda’ mark symbolises. A humanised face but awful eyes more like those of a fierce lion – seen sometimes in the iconography of Vishnu’s Narsimha incarnation, and the identically fierce third eye, make his form as Rudra more accomplished. Not merely as the Ultimate Destroyer even in Shaivite myths Shiva had such Raudra – wrathful, form on some other occasions too. When his consort Sati, insulted by her own father Daksha Prajapati, immolated herself in the fire of her father’s Yajna, Shiva’s Raudra-rupa – wrathful form, emerged and he commanded his Gana Virabhadra to destroy the Yajna and those holding it or participating in it.

Parvati, who symbolises ‘Prakriti’ – the formal nature, has been represented as one partly reflecting Shiva’s mood and partly fearing his wrath and destructive hands. That mood of Shiva reflects in the red which constitutes her head and in her third eye, and her apprehension, in dead yellow with which her face has been conceived, and in the form of her normal eye where fear lurks. As Parvati is Shiva’s other half, she has like him an abstracted manifestation – a partially abstract and partially manifest form. It is different with Vishnu. When the cosmos has been destroyed, Vishnu also perishes though to re-emerge. After millions of years of the divine act of destruction followed by the Great Deluge Vishnu re-appears as a child floating on the surface of abyssal waters not knowing who he is, where he is, and what for he is. This state of Vishnu’s ignorance, or rather non-being, that texts and other sources represent in his child-form, the artist of this rare piece has visualised as ‘conch’ – one of the Vishnu’s essential attributes, and hence his identity, representing Vishnu but neither his physical form nor his knowing mind.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr. Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of literature and is the author of numerous books on Indian art and culture. Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
