Shiva- is the most powerful and fascinating deity in Hinduism, who represents death and dissolution. One of the godheads in the Hindu Trinity, and known by many names- Mahadeva, Pashupati, Natraja, Vishwanath, Bhole Nath- Shiva is perhaps the most complex of Hindu deities.
The painting reveals aspects of Madhubani art style in the figure’s anatomy- proportions, movement, modeling, body colour, forms and colour of snake, tiger-skin. That is, in the painting, entire colour-scheme, technique of colouring using pen for most part, and in forms such as that of river Ganga emerging like a long sash from the Shiva’s coiffure.
While it strongly adheres to the accepted norms of His classical iconography in “Tandava”, His overall appearance and attributes he carries is the theme that this painting portrays.
