Shiv and Parvati Paintings, Lord Shiva Paintings & Artworks
A collection of Shiva and Parvati paintings across different traditional art forms.
Shiva is the destroyer, God of the yogis, self- controlled and celibate, while at the same time a remarable lover of his spouse. Parvati is a family Goddess, known for her wifely devotion to Lord Shiva. She has many other names and aspects. Often Durga, Shakti, and Kali might be considered other forms of Parvati.
They are a symbol of love, power and devotion. The principle power of shiva comes from helping you realize your true self by destroying the aspects of your beliefs and false ego. Whatever Shiva dissolves is recreated by his consort Parvati, the goddess of love, fertility and devotion. Together they make a formidable couple. When you invoke the qualities Shiva and Parvati reveal, it enables you to adopt new behaviors and leads to personal transformation. Lord Shiva is an unpredictable God. Although he can appear tranquil, he easily flies into fits of rage, impulsive acts and, at times, can be callous. Yet he is considered the most powerful of the Gods in the Hindu Mythology. Brahma and Vishnu come to realize this in the story of the shiva linga – the Universal energy of life that has no beginning and no end.
