Patina Artwork in Papier-mâché, Sustainable and Lightweight!
Shiva was absorbed into Tantric Buddhism as one of the deities guarding the Buddha. Shiva’s avatar Mahākāla, literally means “great” + “darkness or blackness”.
He is usually worshipped in the aniconic form of lingam. Shiva is a pan-Hindu deity, revered widely by Hindus in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.
Shiva is the destroyer who ends the cycle of time which, in turn, begins a new Creation. With Parvati, Shiva had a son, the god Ganesha. The boy was in fact created out of earth and clay to keep her company and protect her while Shiva went on his meditative wanderings.
