The striking roopa (form) of Lord Ardhanarishvara. Tall and slender, a juxtaposition of the finest proportions of the sexes. Chaturbhujadhari, a trishoola (trident) in the posterior hand of Lord Shiva and a snake curled up like a lotus in the posterior hand of Devi Uma. A naga (snake) cascading down His lean torso, gold neckpieces resting delicately upon Her fecund curves. Slightly differentiated karnakundalas dangling from each earlobe.

Ardhanrishvara is a one-of-a-kind cross-cultural deity. It stands for the purusha-prakrti composite, which is the precursor to life as we know it (drshyam). Without the confluence of energy or the masculine principle (purusha) and matter or the feminine principle, there would be neither the perceiver nor the perceived. It is the sacred, carefully calibrated fusion of the two that is captured in the iconography of the Ardhanarishvara.

Zoom in on each aspect of the deity to take in the precision and attention to detail with which the composition has been carved. The fine limbs and the dichotomy in attire. The twin presences of Nandi and the simhavahana on Lord Shiva’s and Devi Uma’s side respectively. The mountain-rock half of the pedestal contrasting sharply with the golden lotus beneath Devi Uma’s feet. This Ardhanarishvara murti comes in a variety of finishes to suit the tone and tenor of your home or office space.
