I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

Brass and Bronze Sculptures of Lord Shiva
Lord Shiva is the wild matted-haired ascetic, yet he is also the ideal family man and householder with a wife, goddess Parvati, and their two sons Ganesha and Karttikeya. Shiva contains within himself all opposites, and is even described as half male and half female (Ardhanarishvara). He is sometimes described as the god of destruction, part of the ‘Hindu trinity’ with Brahma as creator and Vishnu as sustainer, but for his devotees he is the supreme Lord who creates, maintains and destroys the cosmos. He conceals his true nature from humanity, yet, at the same time, can reveal his nature as an act of grace.

Shiva is especially worshipped and popularly depicted in the following forms:

1). As the Lord of Yoga meditating on Mount Kailasha in the Himalayas. Often in sculptures, the Mt. Kailasha is depicted in a symbolic manner. He is portrayed with a third eye with which he burned Desire (Kama), with his matted locks in a chignon, a crescent moon in his hair, the Ganges pouring from his locks, garlanded by a snake and sacred Rudraksha beads, seated upon a tiger skin and holding a trident.

2). Shiva as the family man with his wife, the goddess Parvati, and their two sons, Karttikeya and the elephant-headed Ganesha, with the sacred bull Nandi, standing nearby.

3). Shiva as Nataraja, the Lord of the Dance, who, in his awesome dance which expresses his boundless energy, creates, maintains and destroys the cosmos. In such sculptures, Shiva is four-armed, dancing upon the dwarf of ignorance (Apasmara) within a circle of flames.

4). As the aniconic Shiva linga found in most Hindu temples. The linga is symbolic of the union of Shiva with his dynamic energy or Shakti.

"Shiva is worshipped in the form of the male organ of procreation, often alone, and frequently conjoined with the corresponding female organ, which is sculpted as a receptacle to receive Shiva's seed... The distinctive sign by which one can recognize the nature of something is called lingam... The linga is... a great equalizer... worshippers, regardless of sex, caste, or creed... (pour) generous libations on the linga, while simultaneously caressing it intimately... Shiva's liberated phallus represents this illuminating power rising heavenward beyond the material world. Thus is the linga likened to a pillar of light, guiding us to true knowledge..."
The Shiva Linga - Images of Cosmic Manhood in Art and Mythology
"Shiva, the Mahadeva, represents...dissolution or destruction of the cosmos...(among) the functional aspects of God, namely, the creation, preservation and dissolution (of the cosmos)... Brahma and Vishnu have their roots in the Vedas, and not before. Shiva has a pre-Vedic origin, as his worship cult seems to have been in vogue amongst the Indus dwellers, even around 3000 B.C... excavated material includes a number of terracotta seals representing a yogi icon and the phallus type baked clay objects...suggestive of some kind of phallus-worship cult of the non-Aryan settlers of the Indus cities... Shiva's divine perception as well as iconic visualization developed into two directions, one growing out of his serene sublime benevolent Saumyarupa and the other out of his awe-striking Raudra-rupa... The violent jungle god of Vedas and the grim looking horn wearing Yogi of Indus emerges upon the altar of the believing ones, on painter's canvas, in metal casters' mould and in the strokes of hammer and chisel, as the harmless Bholanath, the innocence Lord and the good incarnate, as the supreme auspice, the most formidable of divine powers, the paramount lover and the holiest model of the Vedic family cult..."
The Iconographic Genesis of Shiva
"Shiva's...is the imagery and iconography that evolved over a period of five millennia - perhaps the longest period for an image, or worship tradition, to have evolved and sustained through... Shiva's imagery reveals wondrous unity and unique growth perspective... there is absolute unanimity in regard to the fact that he had iconic presence much before the Vedas came into being... Shiva has been conceived in visual arts as timeless youth, though sometimes with moustaches defining an advanced age and sometimes without them close to juvenescence..."
The Forms of Shiva in Visual Arts
"Shiva is an embodiment of the three principal themes of Indian philosophy....The marriage of Shiva and Parvati was preceded by a long interval of courtship. It was no ordinary engagement however....Shiva was tempted enough to touch her, and Parvati, tantalizing him, withdrew....She would exist only as an intense flame burning for Shiva....Tapasya means to gradually start bringing restraint into our lives....She was no different from the way trees live in this world....Though he possesses nothing, he is the source of all possessions....Inevitable union between male and female…"
Parvati's Quest: Understanding the Essence of Shiva
"Shiva the Hindu god of destruction is also known as Nataraja, the Lord of Dancers (In Sanskrit Nata means dance and raja means Lord). The visual image of Nataraja achieved canonical form in the bronzes cast under the Chola dynasty in the tenth century AD, and then continued to be reproduced in metal, stone and other substances right up to the present times. The Chola Nataraja is often said to be the supreme statement of Hindu art."
