Ardhanarishvara by Ashdei-san Ardhanarishvara by Ashdei-san

Ardhanarishvara - it's a form of indian god Shiva, when he unites with his goddess, Shakti, and they become one androgynous creature.

Well, after my brother showed extremely kind of indifference to all my jokes about his 'new religion', I decided to paint this on his wall. It's actually about 2 metres high, painted by acrylic. A little rough cause I didn't use real paint since i-dont-know-such-numbers, but he liked it)).
I was inspired by already existed images of this gods, so i tried to make mine pretty similar.

The name Ardhanarishvara means "the Lord who is half woman." Or a goddess half man :D (Big Grin)
