  • Rare Indian green granite

This beautiful sculpture depicts lord Shiva in the form of Ardhanari.  Ardhanari is the synthesis of Shiva and his wife Parvati into one body.  Shiva is on the right half with Parvati on the left.  The right side of Shiva has a cobra with his right hand raised int eh abhaya mudra.  The halo behind his head has a spout of water from the Hindu goddess Ganga who resides in Shiva's hair.  Parvati's side has a crescent moon in the halo.  She holds a lotus flower in her hand.  The face of Ardhanari has very typical south Indian sculptural features with large almond shaped eyes.  The forehead shares both forehead markings or tilakas of both Shiva and Parvati.  On the left of the forehead is Shiva's tilaka known as a Tripundra consisting of three horizontal ash lines.  On the right is the one vertical, tear shaped marking of Devi.  The figure has very womanly hips. 

About Green Granite:  Green granite is an beautiful as well as dense stone that has some special features.  When the piece is wet the stone comes alive with a vibrant, rich green which almost makes you pray for rain!   Green granite is even denser/harder than black granite making it extremely difficult and time consuming to carve.  The density of granite makes green granite sculpture perfect for any garden because it can be left outside in extreme heat and extreme cold for years without care.  While visiting temples in south India made of stone it is easy to see the parts of the temple made from green granite because it looks like it was carved yesterday rather than 800 years ago!

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.

Granite statues from India do not need much maintenance. The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating. They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use

You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically
go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.

Soap and warm water is the best way to maintain the statue. You can use a small brush to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair.

Granite's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate. The stone can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold. We suggest you bathe the sculpture at least once a year so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture. This will maintain the sculpture for your grandchildren and then their grandchildren!
