I worship Shiva
who
is lustrous like the radiant halo of the rising sun,
has four arms and three eyes,
holds (in her hands) a noose, a goad, a bow and an
 arrow.

Shiva is red all over
faultlessly beautiful,
adorned with every ornament,
sits on the lap of Shiva-Kameshwari,
is auspicious,
has her lord (Shiva) within her power.

Shiva is the energy and force of Lord Shiva and assumes the form of his consort. Without her, the lord is devoid of the well-being and auspiciousness which his name connotes – Shiva sarva mangalam. The poet compares the luster of this embodiment of energy to the halo of the rising sun, representing thus both life and knowledge. Her four arms depict the four directions she pervades. The noose, arrow, bow and the goad, they all emphasise the need for controlling the mind if we aspire to her or to spiritual realization in general. The noose in her hand is the prem pasha indicating her love for her devotees.

This painting of Devi as Shiva is the last in the series ending it on a tranquil note. With trees fringing the sides and a cloudless blue sky as her canopy sits Devi on a lotus, full-blossomed, symbolic of her bounty and generosity. It also stands for equilibrium and calm in the universe as in the individual's life.

Shiva's three eyes represent her mastery over past, present and future. Shankaracharya, glorifying the grace of her eyes, says:

Your one eye, being the embodiment of the sun, creates day, 
your other, being the embodiment of the moon, creates night,
Your third eye, radiant like the
slightly open golden lotus, creates twilight,
the midpoint between night and day.

Verily, on a mundane level, if a man, in utter despair and despondency, approaches the goddess in supplication and self-surrender, he achieves what he needs and is protected from evil.

Make the person endowed with knowledge, endowed with fame
and endowed with prosperity,
give the form, give the victory, give the fame,
kill the enemies.

Devi's face is as luminous as the rising sun; her whole body appears to be glittering with divine light; her ornaments and garments present an enchanting spectacle. In a happy mood, she looks like a young woman. The trees in the background are painted with careful attention. The sky and the earth are clearly demarcated. Indeed each visible object has been painstakingly rendered.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
