Shiva can have an iconic or aniconic form, and like a complex personality, has multiple forms and a paradoxical character. He has been described as the 'erotic ascetic', the ithyphallic and promiscuous god who is also the celibate yogi practicing austerities in the Himalayas.

True to his iconic form as a yogi, he has smeared his body with ash, is clad in a loin cloth made of tiger skin, and wears a garland of snakes. Ganga sprouts from the top of his head, the side of which also holds a crescent moon. In his left hand he holds the trident that also supports the drum. The right hand holds Parvati, his spouse by the shoulder. Parvati looks elegant and matronly, holding her son Ganesha in her lap. She wears a small crown on hair cascading down her shoulders. The elephant headed Ganesha sits comfortably holding a modaka and lotus flowers. The Family sits atop a huge lotus. The lotus belongs to earth, water and light and is considered an auspicious seat of the gods. Forming an umbrella around the family are demonic serpents. The serpents show the power of Shiva to deal with death.

The artist has painted a dark background illuminated by the divine halo around the heads of the godly couple. The foreground shows dark waters with blooming lotus flowers floating in it.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
Намаскар! Честно говоря, сомневался. Но сегодня получил свой заказ. Порадовала упаковка, упаковано всё очень тщательно и аккуратно. Большое спасибо, как раз подарок к Новому Году! Namaskar! Frankly, I doubted. But today received my order. We were pleased with the packaging. Everything is packed carefully and accurately. Thank you very much, just a gift for the New Year!
