Shiva is a god with many forms. For a scholar, he is Dakshinamurti, the wise teacher of the Vedas, the shastras and the Tantras. For the artist, he is the inspired dancer Natesha, fountain head of all art forms.

Seated on a tiger skin is Shiva in his Ardhnarishvara, androgynous form, his left half female, subsuming within himself, his divine consort Parvati and thus becoming purusha and prakriti conjoined in one. However they both maintain their independent identity and appearance. While Shiva's hair is matted, Parvati's is flowing. The river Ganges emerges from the topknot of Shiva's hair. Shiva wears a garland of human heads and ornaments like kundalas, bracelets, armlets and anklets. Blue of body, he holds a serpent in his hand. Partially within the frame is Shiva's vehicle, Nandi the Bull. A trident and a drum are two of Shiva's most popular emblems, which can be seen on Shiva's side. The female half of the biune image is equally resplendent. From the curling locks to her delicate feet, Parvati is a picture of grace.

The background is devoid of everything but a horizontal stretch of a skyline. The foreground is, on the other hand, pictorially cluttered what with a lotus pond, over which is a lotus carpet and then spread the tiger skin.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
