A colossal piece! This massive depiction of the south facing Lord is inspiring. To sit at Shiva's feet and look up at Him forces deep inner contemplation.
The iconic representation of Dakshinamurthy represents Shiva, seated under a banyan tree in silence inspiring the Sanakaadi rishis. Dakshinamurthy is portrayed as being in the yogic state of abstract meditation and as a powerful form brimming with ever flowing bliss and supreme joy. The fifth day of the week, Thursday is associated with the planet Jupiter and is referred to as Guru-Vaaram. It is on Thursdays that special worship services are offered to Dakshinamurthy in many Saivite temples. Some temple traditions hold full moon nights, particularly the night of the Guru Poornima as the appropriate time for worship services to Dakshinamurthy.
About Indian Black Granite: Indian black granite is a wonderful stone. It is capable of a variety of finishes which can give it a variety of different color possibilities. It is possible to see 4-5 different colors on a single piece depending on the degree of polish or roughness of the stone. Indian black granite is among the best granite in the world sought after by artists globally. Unlike inferior quality granite, Indian granite is extremely dense and without impurities that plague other stones. The density of granite makes a granite sculpture perfect for any garden because it can be left outside in extreme heat and extreme cold for years without care.
You just know when you find the right piece to bring into your home and into your heart. - Kyle Tortora, Founder of Lotus Sculpture
