 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The work explores the physical and emotional interaction between Siva and Parvati as represented in sculpture works in the Indian subcontinent. In two volumes, it examines a host of images supported by classifications of Siva-Parvati figures in texts like the Siva Agamas and iconographic studies on the past decades. It surveys and outstanding sculptural diversity of Siva-Parvati icons particularly forms of seated or standing umsahita-murti, standing Alingana murti and Tantric forms of deities. The images are related not only to religious beliefs but also iconographical research - for instance linking depiction of figures in certain postures and areas to their place of origin. With numerous charts , its highlights iconographical peculiarities, distribution and popularity, and identifies similarities and difference over period of time and areas of making. Referring to Sculptural collections in museums and private acquisitions, their painstaking research examines the sculptures technique of combining aesthetic harmony and the beauty with the sacred in ontological symbols as of Uma-mahesvara. There is a detailed mythological background concentrating on the individual character of Siva and Parvati on their mutual relationship; their marriage and conjugal life; explicity Saiva motifs where the major concern is with the all important Lord Siva; and the physical and emotional interaction of Siva and Parvati as man and wife. An entire volume is devoted to reproduction of rich representative sculpture studies through more than 570 Black and White Photographs and 168 Colour plates.
