Shiv Parivar, The Resplendent Nandi At Their Feet

Shiv Parivar, The Resplendent Nandi At Their Feet

Lord Shiva is a confluence of sannyasa (asceticism) and sansara (householding). While He is worshipped as the Yogishvara Adinatha, He is also venerated as the divine householder. He is the husband of Devi Uma and father to their two sons, Lord Ganesha and Lord Kartika. In this fine composite sculpture, the Lord has been depicted saparivar (with family): the beauteous Devi Uma is sitting next to Him with Lord Ganesha on His lap, while the Lord Karttik is on His father’s lap. The divine Nandi, beloved of the family, rests at their feet in a distinct stance of devotion.

The Kiritmukha aureole of this work is of note. It is engraved with miniature lotus petals (the innermost rim), followed by rims of pearls, flowers, more pearls, and finally a ring of flames. This ring of flames is symbolic of the primal role of Lord Shiva as the existential destroyer. However, the mood of the sculpture is calm and gathered and complete. The large lotus asana atop the traditional quadrilateral pedestal adds to the picture of compassion and stability.

The Lord and His Devi have their iconographies intact. The resplendence of Nandi’s presence is what sets this apart from the more conventional Shivaparivar compositions. His large and well-sculpted form, decked in silk and gold bells, adds to the sanctity of the sacred ménage.
