Harihara, The Deified Amalgam Of Vishnu (Hari) And Shiva (Hara)

Harihara, The Deified Amalgam Of Vishnu (Hari) And Shiva (Hara)

Harihara, The Deified Amalgam Of Vishnu (Hari) And Shiva (Hara)

Harihara is one of Hindu dharma's most unusual composite deity. As could be gleaned from this low-key watercolour by Kailash Raj, Harihara is a fusion of Vishnu and Shiva, each of whose significance in Indian culture is indisputable. Their one halo doubles as the sun in the background, lending the riverbank the glow of the twilight. While Shiva's half is clothed in tiger-hide, and a snake and rudraksha laces wind around His neck and wrist and ankle; Vishnu's half is dressed in silk and jewellery. Note how the artist has brought about the start contrast between Shiva's glowing olive skin and Vishnu's soothing dusky complexion, the former's matted tresses and the latter's bejewelled gold crown. What is common, though, is the all-revealing third eye on the temple of Harihara and the the otherwordly calm on His brow.

Harihara is flanked by Lakshmi and Parvati, each standing gracefully next to Her respective husband. Their hands are in the namaskaram mudra, Their gaze brimming with sublime devotion to Their husbands. Their shringar is fit for the inhabitants of parloka - elegant trains, and ample pearls and jewels. Shiva is the destroyer of the Hindu projector-preserver-destroyer trinity, so His wife Parvati is the deity of lasya that complements His destructive tandava. Vishnu is the preserver, so His wife Lakshmi is the deity of wealth that is a prerequisite to preserve what has been projected. A richly clad Garuda stands right behind Lakshmi, saluting His lord and looking up to Him. Behind Parvati is Nandi, of a superbly tranquil composure of countenance.

The lotus atop which Harihara stands is the most radiant of all the lotuses in the river in the foreground. So lifelike are the brushstrokes of the river against the lush green of the banks, with clusters of flowers nestled against them, that one could almost hear the kalkal melody of the stream. Hills characteristic of the Indian countryside and marble buildings complete the background of this painting. The superbly natural azure that dominates the backdrop is sure to add serenity to your space.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
