Kartikeya, the son of Shiva
and Parvati, was the great commander of the gods' army, born to battle the
demon Tarakasura. The Goddess
Parvati is said to have given her energies to Kartikeya in the shape of a
Bhala, or spear. Lord Kartikeya's primary weapon was this tremendous spear. The
lord is always shown with this weapon in southern Indian art. This brass spear
has a Tripundra, which represents Shiva's threefold strength of will
(icchashakti), knowledge (gyanashakti), and action (kriyashakti). Aum is
written in Tamil on the other side. With all of these holy signs, this spear
becomes a bearer of the greatest auspicious power, capable of eradicating all
unholiness and bringing wealth to a household.
