Wearing a Rudraksha mala, Lord Shiva stands here with His left arm around His wife Goddess Parvati. They make an extremely handsome couple, what with their sharp features and highly sophisticated bearing. Both have a pleasant and reassuringly smiling face, punctuated with lovely lips, with hers being definitely softer than His. While Lord Shiva has a vertical third eye on His forehead, she has a circular dot implying her married status. Shiva’s hair is matted and tied up in a bun; she has curly locks topped with a tiara. The halos of the two deities too are different. While Shiva’s is circular, hers is shaped like a leaf. On the back of each halo is inscribed the sacred symbol OM (see accompanying image of the reverse of the statue). Additionally, Lord Shiva also has the crescent moon on His head. Both of them wear different earrings; while He has simple unornamented hoops, she is a donning a flower-shaped pair (karnaphul).

Shiva and Parvati are our ultimate parents, since they are the creators of this world. Like loving parents, they too always have the well-being of their children in their hearts. Hence, not surprisingly, both here make the gesture of granting fearlessness (Abhaya Mudra) with their right hands.

In her left hand the goddess holds a water pot used by sadhus, indicating that she is as much an ascetic as her husband is. He holds in His left hand a trident to which is tied a double drum (damaru). Serpents entwine His body, right down from the neck to the toes.

While the figure of Lord Shiva is undoubtedly finely rendered, it is in the depiction of our mother Parvati that the sculptor has revealed the full extent of his skill. This is richly exemplified in her clinging sari with its innumerable folds and pleats, held at the waist with a decorated girdle with outpouring tassels; all of these have been rendered dexterously and realistically. In fact, along with her two necklaces (one short, the other long), her whole form is defined by flows, signifying the dynamism of life, which itself springs from the great goddess.

Both the deities have beautiful feet and fingers, placed on a mound with rocks jutting out. This symbolizes mount Kailasha, the divine abode of Shiva and Parvati.

GREAT SITE. SANSKRIT AND HINDI LINGUISTICS IS MY PASSION. AND I THANK YOU FOR THIS SITE.
Madhu, USA
I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
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.
