It goes without saying that the Dakshinamurti roopa of the Lord is the most magnificent and awe-inspiring. The degree of skill and labour that have gone into this particular Daskhinamurti Shiva, as well as the finish variations chosen for it to be made available in, rightly convey the grandeur of His guruship. From the natural textures of the mountain to the musculature of the Lord, each aspect of this sculpture pours forth an aesthetics that is to be found only in the art of India. The shishyas with their gleaming crowns as well as the figure of ignorance that Shiva crushes with His feet are all carved with jsut the right proportion of detail. What distinguishes this from other Dakshinamurti compositions is the gorgeous headdress that frames His compassionate countenance and complements His shringar.
