Of the three deities, it is Shiva's iconography that is somewhat of a match to Hers. His tresses are as matted and moon-ridden as Hers, as opposed to the ornate bejewelled gold of Their lotus petal-tipped crowns. His tiger-skin loincloth and skull-and-snakes shringar are in stark contrast to the coloured silks and jewels of Brahma and Vishnu. All three deities are barefoot on the lush verdure that makes up the background of this watercolour. Note the ashen-faced curs at the mouth of the pyre, which are seemingly ready to charge on the adharmee.
