Shiva’s traditional prominent forms are the anthropomorphic and the aniconic form, the Shiva Linga is the most known of the latter. A Shiva Linga, also called a lingam, literally means the “sign”, and is worshipped by followers of Shiva as an object representation of the God. This Shiva Linga Worship painting depicts the lingam in its most recognizable form phallic shape usually standing at the center of the yoni (a disk-shaped platform with a lip at one side). A visit at shrines for Shiva will show various installations of the lingam, usually at a lower level, made accessible for all worshippers who wish to offer. Offerings and tools for worship are depicted in this watercolor-on-paper painting. Usually, offerings include flowers, rice, fruits, water and a milk bath which worshippers put directly in the lingam. There is also a snake on the yoni, one of the many attributes of Shiva. The warm colorway and sun can symbolize that the act worshipping Shiva is enticing and can easily be part of your regular spiritual routine.
