A simultaneous creator, preserver and a destroyer sits in his complete unperplexed form in a lotus posture on a tiger pedestal indicating himself as beyond and above any kind of force. The gentle smile on his lips allows him to be calm and composed in his gesture of meditation with the violent tiger skin adorned on his waist and hangs from the sides just like vigilant tiger paws.
This auspicious deity is the primal atman of the universe and a patron god of yoga and meditation. He wears his sacred rudrakshmala as a necklace and two layered rudrakshs as arm bands. This six armed deity carries his characteristic implements: trident, dear, scriptures and a coconut with the other two hands above his head holding water pots.
The Jatadhari Bholenath has his companion serpent coiled around his neck with the third eye of wisdom visible on his forehead and river Ganga flowing out from his long matted hair ornamented with the moon symbolic of Vishwanatha’s control over time and space. The alluring part of this sculpture is the fines line and appropriate curves of the attractive magnified size of Lord Shiva.
