Balinese Wooden Shiva Statue

3 lbs 14" h x 8.5"w x 4"
 
Price $150.00

You are viewing a highly stylized, very intricate wood carving unique to craftmanship seen in Bali. Wearing a crown and seated in a meditative pose, the right hand appears to be holding the Vitarka Mudra at the level of the heart. The prominent display of the mudras held in its form strongly denotes a contemplative centeredness in the wheel of the teaching and wisdom of the Dharma.

14 inches to the tip of the crown, this Balinese carving features very distinctive elements. The pointed winglets on the head dress and on each shoulder suggest  a winged Mercury influence. Symbols of speed, the carver is using his craft to convey that this Shiva answers the cries of petitoners instantaneously. The elaborate head adornment suggests there is something like an antenna attached to the crown.  Thus there is a heightened sensitivity to receive and dial-in to any and all distress calls coming in from the faithful.
