Shiva is one of the most profound deities in Hinduism because each of his forms carries a powerful symbolic significance. Too many believers in India, he is the god of creation and destruction, representing the duality of life.
This is a marvelous piece of work by Lord Shiva, he is sitting and biggest, his hands on his lap, his arms are in a perfect O shape in the meditative handprint of meditation, and his handsome face looking inward in quiet contemplation in a meditative meditation, a meditating Shiva naturally has calmer energy. Nestled in his hair was the Ganga Goddess, peering at him with a smile on her face! Beside the Gangga is a crescent moon. He is wearing two pairs of big earrings, there were two necklaces, a brahman’s thread, and a cobra wrapped around Shiva’s neck.
