This sculpture represents an important moment in the marriage of Shiva and Parvati, and also in all Hindu weddings, when the groom accepts the bride by taking her right hand in his own. This is the most significant moment in the solemnization of an Indian marriage and is known as 'panigrahana' (accepting the hand). A particularly vivid description of Shiva's marriage is given in the epic Sanskrit poem Kumarasambahava by Kalidasa and in the Ramacharitamanasa of saint Tulsidas. In the annals of Indian aesthetics, this episode is known as Kalyansundaram.

Here we see Parvati standing to Shiva's right, with her right hand held by Shiva's corresponding arm. Next to them, standing on the same pedestal, is the divine pair of Lord Vishnu and Lakshmi, who are not only witness to the wedding but also bless the newly wed couple by sprinkling water from the pot held in Vishnu's hand. All the four deities wear different hair styles and crowns. While Shiva has a tall crown announcing his supreme status, Parvati has a hairstyle suiting ascetics, suggesting the immense penances she underwent in order to obtain Shiva as her husband. Vishnu and Lakshmi wear crowns typical to South Indian deities. The two gods wear the conventional Indian dhoti, while the goddesses are adorned with dhotis clinging to the limbs much like a traditional sari.

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.
