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.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
