The water vessel is a symbol typical of lord Brahma. The fire or agni is a symbol of Lord Shiva. The conch is a symbol of Lord Vishnu. Represented in Datta's three faces are the members of the Hindu trinity. The face looking straight ahead is Lord Vishnu. Looking to Datta's left is Lord Shiva. Looking to Datta's left is Brahma. The three faces have only two ears with beautiful hanging earrings.
Dattatreya is recognized as an Avatar or incarnation of the Lord Shiva and as the Adi-Guru (First Teacher) of the Adinath Sampradaya of the Nathas. Although Dattatreya was at first a "Lord of Yoga" exhibiting distinctly Tantric traits, he was adapted and assimilated into the more devotional Vaishnavite cults; while still worshiped by millions of Hindus, he is approached more as a benevolent god than as a teacher of the highest essence of Indian thought.
