This Shivalingam is carved with four faces facing the cardinal directions. In Sanskrit such Lingas are known as Pancha-Mukha-Lingam, or the five-faced Linga. In representations in art, the fifth face signifies the ultimate formless abstract principle. It is therefore not explicitly delineated but implied in the dome of the composition as here.

The spatial significance gives this image a cosmic symbolism, with the five faces representing the following forms of Shiva, one for each direction:

1). East: Tatpurusha

2). West: Sadyojata

3). North: Vamadeva

4). South: Aghora

5). Top: Ishana

Delivered by to all international destinations within 3 to 5 days, fully insured.

Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
