This powerful sculpture represents just the head of Lord Shiva, with a realistically rendered serpent coiled around His neck. The face features a slight smile and the eyelids are half closed as if in yogic trance. He has a well formed nose below which can be seen a slight depression which is a characteristic of any human face; below this are the two lips, with the lower one being slightly thicker than the upper. At the centre of Shiva’s forehead is His vertical third eye. He wears large circular earrings, known in Sanskrit as kundalas.

The highlight of the statue however is the depiction of Lord Shiva’s hair. His long and wavy tresses, as that of a beautiful yogi, cascade down like a waterfall behind His head. The strands of His hair are pulled back neatly from His forehead, and swirl up in a multi-layered bun-like coiffure at the top of the head. This bun is tied in place by a serpent with an upraised hood. In an interesting detail, the sculptor has marked this serpent with a trident, the weapon typical to Lord Shiva.

Immersed at the top of this whirl of hair is a small female face, representing the river goddess Ganga, giving Lord Shiva the epithet of ‘Gangadhara’, or the ‘One who gives support to Ganga’. A crescent moon can also be seen on one side of His head, which is highly inspiring to the devotees of Shiva. The moon is the symbol of the mind. Its presence here signifies that one can be a true yogi only when one has gained full control over one’s mind, and not before.
