This sculpture depicts the terrifying, yet benevolent aspect of Lord Shiva known as Bhairava. According to the Shiva Purana, Bhairava is the most complete form of Lord Shiva (purna-rupa), worshipped only by the truly enlightened. In this composition, cast using the centuries old lost wax process, we see the slightly smiling lord with flaming hair (jvalita-shikha), and a dog, his constant companion, behind him. Considered an unclean animal in the Indian tradition, the dog is a particularly suitable companion for a wandering beggar, supposedly a social outcast.

Bhairava here stands in the erect, frontal posture (sambhanga). The feet are adorned with simple anklets and a snake girdle surrounds his waist. The right hands hold the drum (with intertwined serpent) and trident. The left hands hold the noose and skull cup respectively.

Bhairava Images are known with two, four and six arms, these represent respectively the sattvik, rajasik and tamasik forms of the deity.

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.
