Shiva by e-mel Shiva by e-mel
Inspired by a bronze reproduction. Some of the sybolism associated with the image:
Dance - the symbolic movement of the universe
Drum - the beating pulse of the universe
Fire in left up hand - destruction and creation
Fire halo - the cycle of life birth and death
Upraised left foot - release from rebirth
Dwarf - the crushing of ignorance
Serpents - control over the powers of nature
Two different earrings - the masculine and feminine aspects of existance
Third eye - Shiva's all-seeing ability
Crescent moon - the highest principle of conciousness
Hand gestures - salvation and reassurance

Apasmara looks more safe in "Baby" form.

Very nicely done, and well depicted. The bronze reproduction is amazing as well. Although the only thing I noticed, is that Shiva has been depicted blue here by you. Isn't Shiva supposed to be white? Vishnu is blue, and his avatars are also depicted blue.

I don't mean to offend you or your art work in any kind of way, it really came out great, was photoshop used in this artwork?
