A long, slender silhouette that captures the imagination of the truly devoted. A simple unassuming pedestal formed of a blooming padma (lotus) flower. A superbly carved, tapering crown towering over the head of the deity. The Ardhanarishvara deity of the Hindoo pantheon is one-of-a-kind - at first glance it is the composite of Shiva-Parvati, a profound confluence of purusha (energy or masculine principle) and prakrti (matter or feminine principle).

The Ardhanarishvara is a powerful image of this life-affirming confluence. The beauty of Lord Shiva against the finesse of Devi Parvati. He is chaturbhujadhari (four-armed), She dvibhujadhari (two-armed). The strength of His torso, to the fecundity of Hers. The symmetry of their twin shringar, and the lack of it in their respective attire. The fine bronze medium gives the composition an inimitable molten gold colour with undertones of moss.
