Kashyapa, patriarch of the celestial race created devas, the gods of light and asuras the demons of darkness. By granting them mutually antagonistic roles, he ensured their eternal enmity.

Like his counterpart Durga, Shiva also helps in destroying demons and saving the world from their negative influences. Shiva here has ten arms, radiating from the torso in violent movement. He wears a crown on his matted hair, from which Ganga emerges. Ornamental necklaces, rudraksha bead strings and serpents co-exist to form the jewellery decorating his body. Shiva, shown here with a beard and a moustache has a vertical third eye on the forehead. He crushes the demon by dancing on his back as he looks up, helpless and defeated. Also in the foreground is the Devi, trying to appease her enraged Lord.

Shiva is the embodiment of tamas, and the black background reaffirms the statement. The sky is blue with restless clouds painted in fiery orange. A vast range of colours has been used to demonstrate powerfully the violence of the theme.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
