Shiva is the god of life and death, of destruction and rebirth. He is also a deity with many forms, depending on the needs of the world. For the artist here, Shiva is the inspired dancer, Natesha, fountainhead of all art forms.

Shiva's dance form elevated him to the position of Nataraja, a form wherein the arms whirled wildly, his flying locks crashed into heavenly bodies, and his steps split the mountains. We see Shiva dance over the body of Mahisa, who was eventually destroyed by Durga. In his right hand, he holds the trident, which represents the triad of the creator, preserver and the destroyer. The presence of the rattle drum is significant as it makes the final sound of death and produces the primeval reverberation of life. In his left hand, Shiva holds the fire that burns and destroys, yet illuminates and energizes. Shiva has snakes around his body, showing his power to deal with death and also to hold the sexual energy of Kundalini, the yogic serpent power. In the disheveled hair of Shiva can be seen the anthropomorphic form of river Ganga.

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.
