"Whether a man is a legend or not is decided by his history, not fortune tellers."
I will confess that I have always wanted to do a painting of Shiva. I am just so glad to have finally done this piece. It's been in my head for quite a while and to finally sit down and get it done felt soooo satisfying.
The core theme I have tried to keep in this piece is the duality of ideas that portray Shiva; power and peace; chaos and control. As you'll may know, Shiva is one of the most celebrated and revered Gods in Indian culture. The idea of strength was important to keep in this painting.
Anyways, I really didn't think too much into these things. Like I had said, I just wanted to do this painting and am really excited to share it here. Hope you'll like it too.
