Ardhanarishvara, which in Sanskrit means the half-feminine god, evolved as a figurative confluence of the cults of Shiva and Shakti. Parvati is the symbolic deity of the latter, the wife of Shivaji Himself, the all-powerful source of His destructive prowess. While Shiva encompasses and sustains the entire universe, Parvati complements His tandava with Her lasya, adds substance to His paurushya. She is a part of Him as She complements Him, the gracious proportions of Her form fusing into His to put together the singular image of the Ardhanarishvara.

Details of drapery, shringar, and silhouette distinguish the male deity from he female in this composite figure. Compare the jaatmukuta and elongated lobes of Shiva, to the layered crown and gigantic kundalas of Parvati; His sharp jawline and angularly sculpted torso to Her soft contours; His tiger-skin loincloth to Her amply pleated dhoti that grazes Her ankles. The hands of Ardhanarishvara have been positioned such as to convey that He plays the veena whilst She lends Him the notes. The feet rest on a gorgeously sculpted lotus that has been inverted to form a pedestal.

This composition comes in a variety of finish from natural and metallic to ones infused with colours, which has been done to suit wide-ranging spaces and moods. From the point of view of iconography, Ardharishvara stands for the undifferentiated identity of the two entities in question, and for the mutual complementariness of man and woman.
