In the center of the white field is Lord Shiva in a dancing (tandava) pose, holding the trishula and the damaru. In the microcosm, the trident represents the three subtle arteries of the body, ida, pingala and the sushumna. All the rhythms of manifestation are said to have come forth from the 'damaru', the drum of Shiva. He bears on his head as a diadem, the crescent of the fifth day moon. A garland of snakes surrounds his neck. Around the circle that holds the image are rays of various dimensions, reminiscent of the sun.
A narrow border runs on the horizontal ends and on both sides of the vertical bands. This border contains auspicious symbols of the conch, footprints, the sprig of fertility, and flowers. On the wide section are repeat images of Shiva, Parvati and an infant Ganesha, the happy family. Shiva, the ascetic is turned into a householder by his consort Parvati. She is the very expression of femininity, beautiful, sweet, and tender, holding a lotus in one hand and blessing the devotees with the other. Shiva holds her by the shoulder and in the other arm holds Ganesha, wishing a happy family life to his devotees and granting all their desires.
