Virabhadra - The Trusted Guard of Lord Shiva

Virabhadra - The Trusted Guard of Lord Shiva

The powerful warrior and the fearsome form of Lord Shiva was created by the wrath of Shiva to destroy yagna (fire sacrifice) of Daksha, the son of Brahma. This unique name is derived from the Sanskrit, Vira meaning hero, and Bhadra meaning friend. This watercolour painting aptly focuses on his fearfulness; adorned in tiger skin dhoti and a tail hanging behind symbolizing his tiger like rage, a dual colored patka with an astonishing jacket.

Here he stands on Daksha in his unbeatable anger with the six hands holding his characteristic implements; Daksha opposed the marriage of Shiva and his daughter, Sati, and cut her off from the family, so she self immolated herself in the sacrificial fire, due to this grief Shiva created Virabhadra to take revenge.

Apart from the bodily gestures and face expressions, even his crown is exasperating with fearsome sparks out of revenge. The artist has very soberly depicted the blunt color combinations in the painting as they rightly comprehend with the outrageous iconography.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
