The Sanskrit word Dakshinamurt means ‘one who is facing south’ and is an aspect of the guru of all types of wisdom, lord Shiva. He is known as the ultimate guru of wisdom, all things spiritual, yoga, music, dance as well as self-consciousness. Lord Shiva in this position is depicted seated with his left leg resting on the right while his left leg crushing a demon, symbolic of ego. His front right arm in the meditation mudra, pointing to optimum spirituality and holding ‘Damru’ with the cobra on it and fire in other hands. A tree stands upright behind him and below it worshippers praying to Dakshinamurthy.
In this large handmade bronze sculpture of Dakshinamurthy Shiva, he can be seen embellished with lavish jewelry and a rich dhoti to cover his body. The sculpture adorns the authentic Madhuchista Vidhana" (lost wax) as well as Panchaloha Bronze from Swamimalai that accentuates the beauty of this statue. Welcoming Dakshinamurthy Shiva with open arms can open gates to success, wisdom as well as victory over all forms of art and self-love.
