  • A stunning sculpture of Shiva as Ardhanari reclining on a base with the half faces of the vahanas or vehicles of Shiva and Parvati; a Bull and Lion carved in bas-relief on the front with the Bull on the left and the Lion on the right
  • As Ardhanari, Shiva shares his body with his wife Parvati with Shiva on the right side with a cobra perched on his shoulder and Parvati on the left holding a lotus flower
  • Behind the laying figure of Ardhanari is a 5 headed serpent
  • This hand carved, one of a kind Ardhanari is hand carved from red marble which has beautiful veins of cream, orange, grey and red hues which add to the overall energy of this beautiful Shiva sculpture!
A wonderful piece that embodies both the sensuous aspects of Parvati with the ascetic nature of Shiva. Parvati is represented on the left side of Ardhanari.  Shiva, on the right side rests on his arm. Ardhanari's face is sublime.  Both handsome and beautiful showing Shiva and Parvati as not only sharing the same body but the same face as well.  There is a 5 headed serpent over the head of Ardhanari.

About Gorora Stone:  Gorora stone or Red marble is a wonderful stone for sculpture because of its wide color range.  It is rarer than most soft stones and must be shipped into Tamil Nadu from Uttar Pradesh in the north.  The stone has wonderful cream/yellow/green veins in it contrasting to the beautiful deep red to sometimes pink natural coloration of the stone.  The stone is extremely glossy.  When a red marble statue is polished it has a disarming shimmer.
I always say to our customers; The sculpture chooses you, you do not choose the sculpture.
You just know when you find the right piece to bring into your home and into your heart.
- Kyle Tortora, Founder of Lotus Sculpture
Use a cotton cloth and gently buff the surface of the statue to bring out the natural polish of the stone.

White, red and black marble statues are easy to take care of as they just need some annual upkeep to keep them looking as they did when they were first carved. Here are some easy tips to keep your White, red and black marble statues from Lotus Sculpture looking like the gods they are:

  • Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
  • To make the statue shine use a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture
  • You can use a small amount of natural oil such as coconut oil or olive oil to further polish the sculpture
  • Use a tooth brush to get into the hard to reach spaces of the sculpture
  • DO NOT TOUCH the painted surfaces of any of the white marble statues. This will damage the painting if done often

White marble statues from Varanasi, India that are unpainted can be placed outdoors. We recommend keeping our smaller red and black marble statues as well as any painted marble statues in an indoor environment. The red and black marble statues have some delicate pieces that could chip if left outisde. The paint from the white marble statues will not last for more than 4 years if left outside so use discretion when placing your statues outdoors.
