Lord Shiva (Source: Wikipedia):
Shiva (pronunciation: Sanskrit: शिव, "Auspicious one" ) is a major Hindu god and one aspect of Trimurti. In the Shaiva tradition of Hinduism, Shiva is seen as the supreme God. In the Smarta tradition, he is one of the five primary forms of God.
Followers of Hinduism who focus their worship upon Shiva are called Shaivites or Shaivas Shaivism, along with Vaiṣṇava traditions that focus on Vishnu and Shakta traditions that focus on the goddess Devi are three of the most influential denominations in Hinduism.
Shiva is usually worshipped in the form of Shiva linga. In images, he is generally represented as immersed in deep meditation or dancing the Tandava upon Maya, the demon of ignorance in his manifestation of Nataraja, the lord of the dance.
In some other Hindu denominations, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva represent the three primary aspects of the divine in Hinduism and are collectively known as the Trimurti. In this school of religious thought, Brahma is the creator, Vishnu is the maintainer or preserver, and Shiva is the destroyer or transformer.
Why I creates this Artwork?
My Grand Father (Late) Shree Indra Sen Singh was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. During last summer vacations, my father asked me to draw the portrait of Lord Shiva. Though I taken few days to complete this but by God's grace the result was beyond my expectation. I'm not saying that it is perfect yet it is in front of you to decide how I was successful in my efforts.
