SHIVA AND PARVATI SEATED ON A TERRACE DVD


SHIVA AND PARVATI SEATED ON A TERRACE DVD

THE BRITISH MUSEUM    Book Number: 81458    Product format: Unknown

The great Hindu god Shiva is worshipped and depicted in many forms as yogi, hunter, destroyer, lord of the cosmic dance. Yet one exquisite picture in the British Museum shows this wild deity in a more domestic mood enjoying a private moment with his wife Parvati. Just 20cms in height this painting for lovers was designed to imitate viewing rather than be put on public display. The intricate detail is astonishing and would have taken a skilled craftsman hundreds of hours to create. This compelling film of 30 minutes in colour examines and celebrates the artistry of this late 18th century masterpiece. Other beautiful representations of Shiva and Parvati in paintings, reliefs and sculptures are included in a gallery of extra images.
