According to Siva Purana, Shiva is pictured as white as camphor. He is the embodiment of tamas, and should therefore be black. But since light and darkness are inseparable, Shiva appears white. Seated on a rock with his golden complexioned spouse Parvati, Shiva holds her by the waist and blesses the world with the right hand. The back two hands duly hold his attributes – the trident and the hour shaped drum. Both of them wear exquisitely crafted crowns. Shiva, in this painting sports a beard and moustache. Serpents, a prominent part of his iconography, are conspicuous by their absence. Shiva, with his half-closed eyes look inwards, and Parvati looks straight outwards.

The background consists of a flowering tree, the branches of which spread to provide cover to the couple. Abundant flowers and leaves burden the tree limbs. The foreground has their son Ganesha, kneeling in obeisance. In two hands, he holds an axe and an elephant goad, and the other two are held in 'Namaskar mudra'. The artist tries to experiment with colours, using pale blues and pinks, while sticking mainly to reds and yellows.

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.
