NON-EXPORTABLE REGISTERED ANTIQUITY

PROVENANCE
Property from a Distinguished Family Collection


Shiva is one of the gods of the Trinity, who is known primarily as the destroyer, but he also blesses and protects his devotees. He is shown here standing erect and with four arms (Chandrashekhara). His rear arms hold his attributes. His hair is shown as three matted locks flowing down his back like water, perhaps alluding to the tale of the celestial river Ganga, whom he contained and directed in a controlled flow into the world.
