The mythology of Shiva is conflicting, different versions, different interpretations and not a standard source. There is, however, no confusion about his erratic iconography.

Would anyone give a daughter's hand in marriage to a half naked, inebriated mendicant who smears his body with ash, rides a bull and has serpents round his neck? This is how Shiva's procession proceeded to his brides house. Following him are the celestial beings, humans and most importantly the ganas comprising of hooligans, gnomes and goblins, fiendish creatures.

The decorations of the wedding hall divide the canvas horizontally. The lower half depict the wedding and related celebrations. In the middle, Shiva and Parvati sit in front of the sacred fire, following marriage rites. Around them, the gods and humans rejoice at the union, the women dancing and singing. The whole canvas is complete with activity and colour. The eye gets no respite from the overcrowding figures.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
