Uma-Maheshvara: Sitting Posture

In classical Hindu lore, Lord Shiva is characteristically depicted as the destroyer and tales of his anger and fearsome temper are legendary. However, Lord Shiva also has a softer side and is known to bestow great favours upon those who worship Him with a single minded purpose and devotion. Stories abound of kings, wise men and devout worshippers who have often gone through extreme meditation and worship (tapasya) in order to curry favour with Lord Shiva and have been subsequently blessed by Him. This side of the Lord of destruction is classically represented as Maheshwara. In this exquisite marble sculpture, the master craftsman focusses on the loving side of Shiva and his consort Parvathi (also known as Uma). Her Shakti is the manisfestation of the universal principle of energy, power and creativity. This intricately carved masterpiece is a throwback to classical sculpting forms and makes a perfect addition to the living room or the puja room of the ardent devotee.

Suggested Placement: Carved out of white marble these sculptures can be entrenched in the puja (worship)room or the living room.

Note: In all its grandeur this can be custom made i.e. hand sculpted over a specific time frame.
