7" Bhikshatana Shiva Bronze Statue | Hoysala Art Sculpture

FREE Delivery

Bhairava-Bhikshatana (the fierce form of Shiva as a wandering mendicant) or Kapalika (he who has a Kapal or skull in his hand) is an aspect of Bhairava, the valiant and potent form of Shiva, in which the Lord roams the Deodar Forest, imparting the wisdom of nrivtti or salvation from the Moha (attachment of the world).


In a startling attire- elaborate hairdo, serpent wrapped around his bare waist, adorned with Yajnopavita (sacred thread) while carrying a skull, wearing the earring of Parvati in his left ear and his own in the right, Bhikshatana Shiva is accompanied by a dog, whose lunging figure adds dynamism to the composition.


Smiling inwardly on the inhibitions and limitations of those who see only the outer aspect of his form, Bhikshatana Shiva eternally roams the forests of existence, guiding the Pashu (soul) to Mukti, where all ties to worldliness are severed, and all that remains is Shiva.
