A female devotee, kneeling on one knee, is worshiping the Shiva Linga with a lotus pond in the foreground. She has placed offerings of fresh lotuses and a garland of white flowers on the Linga, which is nothing but an iconic form of Bhagawan Shiva. She is singing hymns in praise of her Lord, accompanied by hand cymbals (manjira). Milk dripping from a pot (kalash) above does abhishek of Bhagawan Shiva. It is said in Sanskrit: ‘abhishekpriya hi Shiva, alankarapriya hi Vishnhuh’; i.e. Shiva is pleased with abhisheka and Vishnu when He is adorned.
