Shiva is one of the most important and popular gods of India. The Shiva Purana regards him as performing the triple functions of creation, protection and destruction. He is also identified with the Vedic god, Rudra.

In the cosmic waters, atop a blooming lotus, sits Shiva. He is shown with five heads and ten arms. The artist has used different colours for the faces, but what remains constant is the peaceful countenance and the serpents forming the pinnacle of the karanda mukuta. The serpents are closely associated with Shiva. They earn a place of pride coiled around his neck and other parts of the body. Serpents also represent Kundalini, the supine energy at the base of the spine. The hands of Shiva holds weapons of destruction, justifying his role in the Hindu Trinity as the Destroyer.

The foreground has brilliant colours of pink and green but the colour palette subdues as it goes up, ending in the background that is a calm mix of ochres and browns, the apparent distinction between the two being quite stark.

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.
