Description
The tradition of Indian tribal expression is a unique one. In keeping with the predominantly sculptural aspect of Indian visual arts, tribal works of art stand for a lot more than merely predictable devotion. The one you see on this page is a typical portraiture of Lord Shiva, seated in the characteristic broad-based position of the yogi, with a snake wound around His neck and little Nandi for company.

A number of the hallmarks of Indian tribal art are to be found in this statue. The disproportionately elongated physico-muscular structure of the Lord, which sharpens the emaciated appeal of His ascetic form. The overtly defined features on a thick-set face, in stark contrast with the minimalistic rows of vibhuti on His temple. The style of shringar that depicts the way of life of Indian tribals. A single glance at Lord Shiva betrays the calm - nay, the bliss - of His demeanour.

Despite the neatly sculpted pedestal, one could almost visualise the Himalayan walls surrounding the figure in the centre. He raises a hand in blessing, and holds straight His all-important trishool in the other. A tall bush, each leaf of which has been made with considerable skill and care, stands behind Him. The earthy aesthetics of this statue would make this a one-of-a-kind addition to your space.
