Shiva is a god with many forms. For a scholar, he is Dakshinamurti, the wise teacher of the Vedas, the shastras and the Tantras. For the artist, he is the inspired dancer Natesha, fountain head of all art forms.

Seated on a tiger skin is Shiva in his Ardhnarishvara, androgynous form, his left half female, subsuming within himself, his divine consort Parvati and thus becoming purusha and prakriti conjoined in one. However they both maintain their independent identity and appearance. While Shiva's hair is matted, Parvati's is flowing. The river Ganges emerges from the topknot of Shiva's hair. Shiva wears a garland of human heads and ornaments like kundalas, bracelets, armlets and anklets. Blue of body, he holds a serpent in his hand. Partially within the frame is Shiva's vehicle, Nandi the Bull. A trident and a drum are two of Shiva's most popular emblems, which can be seen on Shiva's side. The female half of the biune image is equally resplendent. From the curling locks to her delicate feet, Parvati is a picture of grace.

The background is devoid of everything but a horizontal stretch of a skyline. The foreground is, on the other hand, pictorially cluttered what with a lotus pond, over which is a lotus carpet and then spread the tiger skin.

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.
