Shiva is one of the most important and popular gods of India. The Shiva Purana regards him as performing the triple functions of creation, protection and destruction. He is also identified with the Vedic god, Rudra.

In the cosmic waters, atop a blooming lotus, sits Shiva. He is shown with five heads and ten arms. The artist has used different colours for the faces, but what remains constant is the peaceful countenance and the serpents forming the pinnacle of the karanda mukuta. The serpents are closely associated with Shiva. They earn a place of pride coiled around his neck and other parts of the body. Serpents also represent Kundalini, the supine energy at the base of the spine. The hands of Shiva holds weapons of destruction, justifying his role in the Hindu Trinity as the Destroyer.

The foreground has brilliant colours of pink and green but the colour palette subdues as it goes up, ending in the background that is a calm mix of ochres and browns, the apparent distinction between the two being quite stark.

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.
