Presenting a magnificent painting of the Hindu deity Lord Shiva riding the Nandi Bull. The artist has used detailed brushwork with fine lines to bring out the Symbolism Behind The Form Of Shiva. The Moon on his head, the Snakes on his neck and arms, the Trident in his hand, the Third Eye on his forehead and his mount, Nandi the Bull, have all been deftly represented in the artwork.
Lord Shiva represents the aspect of the Supreme Being (Brahman of the Upanishads) that continuously dissolves to recreate in the cyclic process of creation, preservation, dissolution and recreation of the universe. Lord Shiva is the third member of the Hindu Trinity, the other two being Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu.
Nandi is the name for the bull which serves as the mount of the god Shiva. Nandi is said to be Shiva’s main form of transportation and most ardent devotee. Along the same lines, Nandi is regarded as the gatekeeper and protector of Shiva as well as Shiva’s consort the Hindu Goddess Parvati. He can be found in many temples dedicated to Shiva throughout Asia seated and facing the main temple as protector. His name, Nandi, is even used as metaphor meaning “to stand in the way of”. It is said that one must first gain the approval of Nandi before being allowed worship of Lord Shiva himself.
