Shiva and Parvati Seated on a Terrace DVD


Members' price *

  • The great Hindu god Shiva is worshipped and depicted in a multiplicity of forms - yogi, hunter, destroyer, lord of the cosmic dance. But one exquisite picture in the British Museum shows this wild deity in a more domestic mood, enjoying a private moment with his wife Parvati. Just 20cm in height, this 'painting for lovers' was designed for intimate viewing rather than public display. The intricate detail is astonishing and would surely have occupied a skilled craftsman for hundreds of painstaking hours. This compelling film examines and celebrates the artistry of this late 18th-century masterpiece and also tell its fascinating history.
