Shiva is the Indian God of Annihilation.. he is a part of the Hindu Trinity and is reponsible for destroying the cosmos at the end of each cycle of creation so that Brahma the creator god can start the process again.... in Hindu ethos, time is cyclical and the trinity helps in maintaining it..Shiva carries a  trident as his weapon and rides the sacred bull Nandi.. here i have shown him in a pensive mood, after energy waves from his third eye reduced the love-god Kamdev to ashes! (Hint- notice the half open third eye!!).. the serpents are his garland and the newborn moon adorns his hair... Shiva is depicted in many moods and my personal favorite is Shiva the Yogi so i have tried to capture that serenity and calmness in his face here...The photograph in the background is from my personal collection from my trip to the himalayas a year back.. i loved the snow clad mountain peaks there and immediately thought of painting Shiva in such a setting.. but as i am too lazy to get into doing backgrounds photoshop was the next best option :)
