Ardhanarishvara Shiva / Shakti

This half man and half woman form of Shiva, with Parvati (or Shakti) as the left half, represents the dual nature of all within the created world. Hence the need to look upon woman as equal and complementary to man, and that the male and female qualities within each of us are necessary parts of a whole being.

The iconography tells much more…

This bronze is a small edition of 5; that fact and the highly accomplished detail of modeling and iconography make it a uniquely wonderful piece for any lover of fine spirit evoking art.
