Shiva is the embodiment of tamas, the centrifugal inertia, the tendency towards dispersion and disintegration. Ardhanarishvara is the gentle aspect of Shiva in androgynous form which denotes the inseparability of all male and female forms, the cause of creation in the world.

The right side of the brass mask represents Shiva and the left Parvati. The expression of the biune face is one of serenity born of realization. Parvati's coiffure matches up with Shiva's locks tied in a knot. The kundala in Shiva's ear is distinctively different from that of Parvati's. The mark of Shiva, the three horizontal lines decorate the male forehead and a dot the female one. The two eyes are differentiated by the depth in them: the female eye being deep and more shapely. Parvati's nostril wears an ornamental ring, while a moustache depicts the masculinity of Shiva's side.

From the philosophical point of view, this composite form represents the creative union of the active and passive principle. From the aesthetic point of view, weight, volume and grace assimilate to produce this extraordinary piece.

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.
