This painting is an exquisite work of Madhubani art featuring the Hindu deity Ardhanarishvara surrounded by a colorful design & border.
Ardhanarishvara is a composite form of the Hindu god Shiva and his consort Parvati. Ardhanarishvara is depicted as half male and half female, split down the middle. The right half is usually the male Shiva, illustrating his traditional attributes. Ardhanarishvara represents the synthesis of masculine and feminine energies of the universe and illustrates how Shakti, the female principle of God, is inseparable from Shiva, the male principle of God. The union of these principles is exalted as the root and womb of all creation.
Madhubani painting or Mithila painting is a style of Indian painting, practiced in the Mithila region of Bihar state, India and the adjoining parts of Terai in Nepal. Paintings are characterized by eye-catching geometrical patterns and celebrate a harmony of man with God & nature.
