This wood statue, exceptionally elaborate in details, unparalleled in divine aura and its power to elevate and charge the ambience with spiritual fervour, and rare in its transcendental quality, represents Lord Shiva, his consort Parvati and son Ganesha seated on rocks symbolising mount Kailash, in myths Shiva’s regular abode. They are seated on an asana made of a lion’s skin, and are seated under the protective canopy of a lush, gigantic flowering tree (see image above of the reverse of the sculpture).

Lord Ganesha, wearing a crown, is seated in the center, between his two loving parents. Father and son both make the Abhaya Mudra (bestowing fearlessness) with their right hands. The only difference being that Shiva’s palm is marked with the sacred syllable OM. Shiva’s long hair is neatly held together by two serpents. The Goddess Parvati wears the traditional Indian dress, consisting of a ghagra skirt reaching down to her feet, and wired nose ring in her nose. A long, as also a short necklace falls down her neck. She wears an elaborate tiara and tow cascades of hair symmetrically fall down her two shoulders. She holds two lotus buds, in various stages of bloom, in her left hand.
