Shiva & Shakti (Art)



The above work is done in crayons and depicts the two energies that create, bind, rule and propagate the cosmos. These two energies are depicted as Shiva and his consort Shakti. 

While Shakti, the destroyer is the furious form of energy depicted by fire, Shiva, the calmer form, is depicted by water. The yellow whirl below indicates the cosmos that starts with their energy and culminates in form of the universe. 

Modern scientific research* also proves that matter is a highly condensed form of energy. The green part indicates potency and fecundity and along with the yellow whirl, the lower part of this work also reflects the third eye of Lord Shiva.

Suggestions and corrections are most welcome!

  1. Looks pretty awesome to me but then my only claim to any artistic sense would be that I used to date an artist :)
