oneness of Shiva-Shakti, Purusha, and Prakriti is the source of origin,
sustenance, and destruction in the universe. In this exquisite brass idol, Shiva and Parvati are represented
using the idiom of Mukhalinga, with innovative iconography. The base of the
composition is a beautiful lotus platform, on which the divine faces of Shiva
and Parvati are placed. The heavenly duo share a Nagaabhushana (serpent
ornament) wrapped around their necks. Shiva has his Jata adorned with a floral
tie and crescent moon and his forehead is beautified with a Tripunda, while Uma
adds to his brilliance with her celestial beauty, which is embellished with
head ornaments, tiny crescents on her forehead and a lovely Dot (bindi) between
her brows. Together, the gloriousness of this Shiva-Parvati statue puts the Sun and the
moon to shame, radiating sacredness in space.
