This beautiful romantic vintage shrine print is of the well known Hindu God Shiva and his wife Parvati and is heavily decorated with glitter.
Shiva and Parvati are held up as the perfect example of marital bliss by many Hindus, and one is rarely depicted without the other.
Shiva represents contrasting values both lust and purity, peace and destruction. When depicted together with his wife, Parvati, he represents the union of male and female and marital fidelity. Hindus believe Shiva and Parvati live in the Kailash mountains in the Himalayas.
Size: 14" x 10"
This print has gone through many monsoons (with months of humidity), so it may have some staining and discoloration, along with some marks, slightly torn edges and rips that come with daily use and age. Please check the photos for more details.
In the period following independence in 1947 in India, the religious print business in India grew dramatically in its scale and diversity. All the prints I import from India are from this era and are a lot more colorful and bold in comparison to the very early prints in the late 1800's.
