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
